Eight held in swoop on 'dissidents'

Eight men have been arrested on suspicion of dissident republican activity.

The men, aged from their mid-20s to 50s, were detained following a Garda search of commercial premises in Clondalkin at midday on Friday.

No firearms or explosives were recovered during the search, which was carried out by gardai from the Special Detective Unit and national garda units.

The men were being held at various garda stations in Dublin under the Offences Against the State Act of 1939.
