The burglaries took place at petrol stations, post offices and shops in Tipperary, Clare, Cork and Limerick, where cash, cigarettes and safes were stolen.

The two men were arrested this morning as part of an intelligence-led operation which focused on an organised crime group.

They are currently being held Tipperary town and Nenagh garda stations under the provisions of Section 50 Criminal Justice Act, 2007.
