GARDAÍ TARGETING ORGANISED crime in north Dublin seized drugs, cash and a number of phones and weapons following the raid of a house yesterday evening.

Members of the Emergency Response Unit, Armed Support Unit joined local detectives and drugs units alongside uniformed gardaí in the raid of the house on Ratoath Road in Finglas.
