IOL: Gardaí arrest three dissidents

Gardaí arrested three men and seized a number of firearms today as part of an ongoing operation into the activities of dissident republicans.

The men – all from Northern Ireland – were arrested when officers stopped a vehicle at Whitehall, north Co Dublin, at around 12.30pm.

Gardaí said they were all in their late 30s to early 40s.

They were being questioned under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act at Whitehall and Santry Garda stations, and can be held for up to 72 hours.

The arrests were part of an operation between gardaí and the Police Service of Northern Ireland.
