The arrest of four men following a spate of burglaries in Monaghan town on Saturday has been described as a "fantastic result" in the battle against rural crime.

The men, all aged in their early 20s and late teens, are thought to be linked to a high number of burglaries across the country and are connected to a west Dublin family who are well known to gardaí. They were apprehended after a chase through fields by detectives and the Garda Air Support Unit.

Gardaí were responding to reports of suspicious activity in the Rope Walk area of Monaghan when they saw a number of males flee from a house.

All four were taken to Monaghan Garda Station and are expected to appear before Monaghan District Court later this morning.
