GARDAI have delivered a major blow to the activities of a gang involved in localised feuding in the inner city following the seizure of a loaded shotgun and €50,000 in drugs.

Two men and woman were arrested in a raid on a property in the Kevin Street area as quantities of cannabis, cocaine and a firearm were seized on Friday night.

“As part of Operation Tara, the Divisional Drugs Unit based at Kevin Street Garda Station conducted a search of a house under warrant in the Kevin Street area of Dublin 8 on Friday, 18th March,” a Garda statement said.

"In the course of the search, a loaded shotgun and ammunition (ballistic examination pending) was discovered along with quantities of suspected cocaine and cannabis (pending analysis) worth €50,000."

A woman aged in her 40s and two men aged in their 30s and 40s were arrested at the scene.

They are currently detained under section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939 in Kevin Street and Kilmainham Stations.

A source said yesterday that gardaí in the area have been dealing with tit-for-tat feud related incidents in the inner city in recent weeks.

“Yesterday’s operation targeted one side involved in these incidents,” the source said.

Gardaí said investigations are ongoing.
