The Garda Commissioner says the seizure of hundreds of thousands of euro in cash and documents in Sandyford will help dismantle the Kinahan crime gang.
Over €300,000 euro in cash was discovered when officers from the Garda National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau raided an address in Sandyford yesterday evening.
A cash counting machine, packing equipment and documentation was also found in the planned operation.
A man in his 30s was arrested at the scene, he is being held at Blackrock garda station.
A number of follow up searches took place in the Clondalkin area and a second man in his 30s was also arrested.
He is being detained at Clondalkin Garda Station where he can be questioned for up to 24 hours.
Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan said this is a significant breakthrough for gardai: "I think it's really good evidence of the ongoing work to target organised crime, two people arrested, very significant seizure of cash and indeed significant documentation that will make big in roads into dismantling the Kinahan crime gang."
She added: "We're working very very closely with our international partners and I think that the key message is borders and boundaries can provide no protection for people."
