The two men were arrested during the course of this operation. 

Detective Chief Superintendent Angela Willis – the head of bureau at the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau – said gardaí “continue to target those causing most harm and devastation in our community”.

“The seizure of a firearm, ammunition and a sizable quantity of controlled drugs will, we believe, contribute to the disruption and potential ultimate dismantling of particular organised crime groups that we continue to target, for the purpose of keeping communities safe,” she added.
