Gardaí have seized "offensive weapons", fireworks, drugs and cash following two searches in Co Cork.

Two houses were searched under warrant in Mallow town on Friday night.

During the first search, Gardaí seized 490 fireworks, an airsoft replica handgun, pepper spray, a taser disguised as a mobile phone, and a machete.

They also recovered a small amount of suspected cocaine, cannabis herb and diazepam, along with weighing scales and €400 in cash.

During the second search, a legally held rifle, ammunition and five airsoft replica firearms, some of which are believed to be over the legal limit of one joule, were also seized.

Gardaí also found a small quantity of cannabis herb and €1,750 in cash.

The searches were carried out by officers from the Mallow District Drugs Unit who were assisted by Gardaí from Mallow and the Southern Region Dog Unit.

All of the seized firearms will be sent for ballistic examination and the suspected drugs will be sent to Forensic Science Ireland for analysis.

No arrests have been made in connection with the seizures.

However, Gardaí say they are following a definite line of inquiry.
