A MAN HAS been arrested and a firearm seized in north Dublin, Gardaí say.

Officers who were on the beat on Fitzgibbon Street near the North Circular Road yesterday evening stopped and searched a vehicle at around 5pm.

They seized a firearm and a number of implements before arresting the sole occupant of the car, a 25-year-old man, who was  taken to Mountjoy Garda Station.

He was later released from custody and Gardaí say that a file is now being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
