Anti-terrorist detectives have arrested three suspected members of a dissident republican unit.

Officers from the Special Branch made the arrests after a lengthy operation into fund- raising activities by the so-called Dublin "brigade" of the Real IRA terrorist faction.

The operation culminated in a swoop yesterday morning on a housing complex in the Lucan area of west Dublin.

During a search, gardai recovered electrical equipment, including laptop computers and TV sets and estimated to be worth about €50,000. The haul had been stolen during a robbery in the capital recently.

Following the find, officers detained three men.
