Gardaí still at scene of Cappagh Road standoff

Gardaí could not confirm if any arrests have been made.

A ROAD IN Finglas remains closed, as gardaí attend to a standoff between two groups.

Gardaí say that they have closed Cappagh Road at the junction of Ratoath Road in the Dublin town as two families continue to be engaged in a confrontation. The violence broke out late last night.

A Garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that the situation was ongoing and operational, so could not confirm any details of the operation or if there had been any arrests.
