40 people are due in court this morning in connection with burglaries in North Dublin.

They've been charged with 60 offences in total. 39 men and one woman were arrested.

The operation was carried out by gardai in Coolock and Raheny and was specicially targeted at organised crime groups and repeat offenders.

Those arrested are aged between 18 and 63 and have been charged with 60 offences among them, including burglary and other associated crimes.

They're due to appear before various district courts across the city this morning.

Two other people - arrested as part of the same operation - are being dealt with under the Garda Youth Diversion Scheme.

Gardai say the operation was carried out as part of Operation Thor which was launched in November 2015 to tackle the anticipated increase in the number of burglaries and associated criminal activity that usually occur in winter months.

The gardai say this initiative has successfully reduced the rate of winter burglaries.
