Gardaí have discovered a loaded “semi-automatic” sawn-off shotgun in Dublin.
The gun was uncovered after Gardaí launched an operation at Sheephill Park in Blanchardstown yesterday afternoon.
After searching a home in the area, investigators found the loaded weapon in the undergrowth at a wasteland area in the estate.
The weapon has been sent to Garda Headquarters for ballistic testing.
No arrests have been made and the Garda investigation is ongoing.
