A woman in her 30s who was arrested after a firearm was seized at a gardai checkpoint has been released without charge.

Gardai stopped and searched a car as part of Operation Thor in Co Cork on Friday evening at around 7.30pm.

A shot gun and ammunition was recovered during the search conducted by units from Gurranabraher and Anglesea Street Stations.

A man and a woman - both aged in their 30s - were arrested at the scene at Clogheenmilcon in Blarney.

The woman has been released and a file will now be prepared for the information of The Director of Public Prosecutions.
