Detectives investigating dissident republicans have arrested two men.
The pair, aged in their 40s and 20s, were detained after the seizure of firearms and ammunition in a house raid in Dublin.
A Garda spokesman said: "As part of a planned operation detectives from the special detective unit carried out a search of a house in the south inner city area of Dublin.
"During the search three firearms and an assortment of ammunition - subject to technical examination - were recovered."
The men are being detained under section 30 of the Offences against the State Act at Shankill and Kevin Street Garda stations.
"The investigation is ongoing," added the Garda spokesman.
