The New IRA is involved in a “significant” recruitment drive in Dublin after a number of major policing operations in Northern Ireland have put the terrorist organisation under severe pressure.

It can be revealed that the Garda’s Special Detective Unit (SDU) have been carrying out ongoing operations in the Inchicore, Crumlin, Drimnagh, Clondalkin and Tallaght areas of the capital.
