A 34-year-old man is due in court in Co Monaghan charged with firearms offences.

The man was arrested on Wednesday after gardaí stopped a car outside Carrickmacross and recovered four guns and ammunition.

The man is being detained at Carrickmacross Garda Station pending his appearance before the District Court this afternoon.

Gardaí believe the firearms are linked to Dublin criminal gangs and are not connected to the ongoing Drogheda feud.
