12 people have been arrested by gardaí in Dublin for public order offences following disturbances in the area earlier today.

The trouble started in Finglas at around 4pm today.

Gardaí say five cars were burnt out in the Cardiffbridge Road area during the day but the situation has settled down.

Earlier gardaí from the public order unit had patrolling parts of Finglas. 

They have now been withdrawn but gardaí are maintaining a presence in the area.

There are no reports of any injuries.
