GARDAI have foiled a potential shooting in Dublin this evening.

A Garda spokesman has confirmed that two men were arrested in the Dolphin’s Barn area on the capital’s south-side.

He said that they are being held in relation to firearms offences.

The two males, aged 19 and 28, were arrested by a Garda and two firearms and ammunition were recovered.

Gardai said they were conveyed to Sundrive Rd and Crumlin Garda stations where they are being detained under the provisions of Section 30 Offences Against the State Act 1939.

Investigations are ongoing.
