Gardaí have released two men from custody after the major search operation yesterday which saw seventeen people arrested.

GARDAÍ HAVE RELEASED from custody two of the seventeen people arrested yesterday as part of an investigation into dissident activity at the funeral of a Real IRA member.

Fourteen men and one woman are still being detained at a number of garda stations across Dublin and Meath after a major search operation yesterday which saw imitation guns, mobile phones and computers seized.

Gardaí have set up an incident room at Clontarf garda station and say they are investigating the possession and discharge of guns at the funeral of Real IRA member Alan Ryan’s funeral in Donaghmede in Dublin 13 on Saturday.

More than 200 Gardaí were involved in yesterday’s major search and arrest operation into subversive paramilitary activity.

All of those arrested can be held for up to 72 hours under the Offences Against the State Act.
