Gardai have seized a number of AK47 assault rifles, mortars, detonators, and parts of explosive devices.

Gardai discovered the firearms during an operation targeting dissident republican activity in the border region last Wednesday.

Searches were carried out in the Scotstown area of County Monaghan by members of the Special Detective Unit, the Emergency Response Unit, the Garda Dog Unit and members from the Cavan/Monaghan Divisional search team.

A man in his 40’s appeared before a special sitting of the Special Criminal Court at the Criminal Courts of Justice on Saturday.
