Eight gardaí have been suspended on foot of claims of alleged corruption, as part of a major garda probe in the Munster region.

The suspensions came on Saturday after lengthy enquiries by the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation.


The investigation is focused on claims that gardaí did not pursue garda enquiries into alleged road traffic offences and public order allegations against a number of parties.

Last October, mobile phones and documents were seized from a number of gardaí, as well as GAA players and officials.

According to sources, some gardaí have claimed that they were directed to abandon prosecutions.
