Six men have been arrested after a car chase on the northside of Dublin last night.

One man is due in court this morning, while five others have been released without charge.

It started at around 9pm when Gardaí observed a car driving dangerously and at speed in the Cardiffsbridge Road area of Finglas.

Members of the force attempted to stop the vehicle and a chase ensued.

During the course of the pursuit the car collided with two patrol cars before being stopped in the Abbotstown Avenue area of Finglas.

The driver of the car, a man aged in his 30s, was arrested and taken to Blanchardstown Garda Station.

He has since been charged in relation to dangerous driving offences and is due appear before Blanchardstown District Court this morning.

Five passengers of the car, one man aged in his late teens and four men in their 20s, were also arrested at the scene.

They have all since been released from custody.

One one was injured and Gardaí says they are continuing to investigate all of the circumstances behind the incident.

Speaking last night Assistant Commissioner Pat Leahy, Dublin Region said;

"I commend the members of An Garda Síochána who dealt with this reckless and dangerous incident tonight. This incident clearly demonstrates there are a minority in our society who have no regard for public safety on our roads but also have no regard for Public Health during this COVID-19 emergency."

He went on to say; "The message from An Garda Síochána is that we are fully resourced and will take all proportionate and legal action to protect the public health of our communities at this time."
