Gardaí say they expect more people to be arrested after they prevented a gangland shooting in Dublin.

Four men remain in custody this afternoon as part of the investigation into the Hutch/Kinahan feud.

Last night's operation is being described as one of the most significant of its type ever carried out in the State.

For several months, gardaí have been gathering intelligence and last night they made their move on four men associated with the Kinahan cartel.

Two were picked up in Fairview in a van, where a loaded Beretta pistol and a silencer were also found.

Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll says they will allege the weapon was about to be used to take a person's life.

Garda operation in Dublin was 'one of most significant ever undertaken in the State'

At the same time in the south inner city, gardaí picked up two other men.

Gardaí believe they have prevented a gangland shooting.

The intended target is thought to be associated with the Hutches, and knows his life is in danger.

10 further searches were carried out last night, and seven vehicles were seized.

The four men - aged in their 20s and 30s - have been arrested for conspiracy to murder and are being held at various stations in Dublin.
