THREE of the seventeen suspects arrested by Gardai yesterday during their investigation into incidents at the funeral of Real IRA boss Alan Ryan have been released from custody.

The others, who include one woman, are still being questioned by officers about a paramilitary display, which included firing a volley of shots as Ryan’s coffin was being taken from the family home at Grange Abbey Drive in Donaghmede, on the northside of Dublin.



The suspects were detained in an operation, codenamed Ambience and set up on the orders of Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan.



Searches were carried out at 30 locations across Dublin, Naas, Co Kildare, and outside Kells, Co Meath. Gardai recovered three imitation firearms, mobile phones, computers and literature.



All of the items are being examined as gardai prepare files for the DPP on a number of suspected dissident republicans.
