Gardaí have found ammunition and a suspect device in a search in Co Galway.
The search was carried out yesterday as part of an intelligence-led operation of lands at Castledaly.
In a statement, Gardai say members from Gort and Loughrea conducted the search of woodlands, and at about 2pm yesterday, found two boxes of ammunition and a suspect device during the search operation.
The Army Explosives Ordnance Disposal Unit attended the scene and made safe the suspect device.
Gardai say all items seized will be subject to technical examination, and their investigations are ongoing.
It's thought the find may be linked to dissident republican activity.
