GARDAÍ IN LIMERICK have seized a stun gun, evidence of betting and €20,000 in cash during searches carried out as part of an investigation into match-fixing in the League of Ireland.

The searches were carried out in the Limerick city area this morning by the garda’s anti-corruption unit, the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau (GNECB), and local detectives.

Documentary evidence including evidence of betting, mobile phones, and electronic devices were also seized along with the cash and stun gun.

No arrests were made and a garda spokeswoman said their investigations are ongoing.

The operation follows another search at a sports ground in Limerick last year, which also took place as part of an investigation into alleged match-fixing in the league.
