Gardaí have arrested three men and recovered a car following a burglary at a pub in Cavan.

It happened in the town on Friday morning.

A car failed to stop for gardaí patrolling the N3 Dublin Road in Cavan town shortly after 6.00am.

The car was followed by gardaí to Stradone village where it crashed into a ditch.

Those in the car then fled the scene on foot.

During a follow up search, three men aged in their late teens were arrested.

It is understood the car recovered, along with a sum of cash, had been taken by intruders during the course of a burglary at a pub a number of hours earlier.

The three arrested men were taken to Cavan garda station and detained under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

A forensic examination was carried out on the car and at the scene.

Gardaí say the investigation is ongoing.
