Three suspected guns have been uncovered on the south side of Limerick.

The discovery was made by Gardaí investigating a violent disorder incident earlier this month.

Investigators said a number of people armed with offensive weapons were involved in an incident at Lenihan Avenue in Prospect on January 4th.

A major investigation was launched and this morning a number of searches were carried out on the south side of the city.

Searches in an open area in the Galvone area of Limerick were supported by specialist engineers from the Defence forces and the Garda Armed Support Unit.
