Gardaí have uncovered explosives, guns and ammunition during searches on a site at Omeath in Co Louth.
The operation was a follow-up to an investigation on February 1st targeting dissident republican groups.
Further searches were carried out on Thursday.
This operation involved Gardaí from the Louth Garda Division, Special Detective Unit and from Special Tactics & Operations Command.
During the operation, Gardaí recovered a quantity of explosives, two firearms and a "sizable" quantity of ammunition of various calibres.
An Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit of the Irish Defence Forces later visited the site.
Some of the material was destroyed by a controlled explosion.
Investigations are ongoing - but Gardaí have said there will be no further comment "for operational reasons."
