A major Garda operation in Cork this morning saw a firearm, ammunition, and drugs seized.
As part of a wider operation targeting the sale and supply of drugs across Cork city and county, officers conducted searches at a number of residential premises and grounds in Hollyhill on Thursday morning.
The operation was carried out by members attached to Watercourse Rd, Mayfield, Gurranabraher, Cork City Divisional Detective and Drug Units, Regional ASU Cork & Limerick, the Regional Dog Unit, and the National Air Support.
