THREE PEOPLE HAVE been arrested after Gardaí carried out a “significant” search targeting dissident republican activity in Co Cavan this morning.

A number of premises were searched today by the Special Detective Unit (SDU), supported by the Ballistics and Forensics Section, and local gardaí from the Northern Region.
