A 27-year old man was arrested as he got out of a car, and another 25-year old man was found hiding during a follow-up search.

The men, who have addresses in Dublin’s North inner city, are currently being held in custody in Enniscorthy and Gorey Garda Stations.

It is understood that a member of the Hutch family was the target.

Two firearms and ammunition were seized at the scene, as well as three vehicles.
