Three men have been arrested in Limerick as part of an ongoing operation targeting organised crime.

The three, who are all in their 30s, were detained after the car they were travelling in at high speed through the Dooradoyle and Raheen areas collided with another car.

A firearm was seized during a follow-up search of a property in Bruff in Co Limerick.

The men are being held at Henry Street and Roxboro Road Garda Stations.
