Man due in court in connection with firearms charges

A man in his 30s is due to appear in court this morning in connection with the seizure of a firearm and ammunition in Dublin on Saturday.

One car was stopped on the Naas Dual carriageway shortly before 3pm on Saturday, and during the course of a search of the car, a firearm and ammunition was recovered.

A male in his 30s was arrested.

Shortly afterwards a second car was stopped on the Long Mile Road, Dublin 12 and the male driver, also in his 30s, was arrested.

Both were being detained under the provisions of section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 as amended  in Dublin Garda stations.

The second man who had been detained was released without charge late last night and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
