DUBLIN, Ireland - Hundreds of shotgun cartridges have been discovered during a planned search by Blanchardstown Gardai.

The search was carried out on Monday 24 June in Westway Woods, Dublin 15 as part of an ongoing operation targeting criminality in the Corduff area.

Two bags containing over 200 shotgun cartridges were located in dense undergrowth.

"The recovery of this ammunition is another example of the current successful Garda strategy of removing guns and ammunition from the streets, thereby reducing their ability to intimidate the local community," Superintendent Liam Carolan said Tuesday.

"These operations will continue for the foreseeable future in the area," he said.
