Not much detail yet but it looks like an interesting story emerging from Tallaght where last night 9 people were arrested in what is described in the RTÉ report as “an ongoing operation by the Special Detective Unit charged with investigating subversives.” Among those arrested, the RTÉ report understands, was “a member of the INLA who was recently released from prison”.

It is understood that when members of the Emergency Response Unit raided the house in Tallaght, they found a man who they believed was being held captive. When officers entered the house, they found the man stripped naked and they believe he was being interrogated. The nine are being held under Section 30 of the Offences Against The State Act at various garda stations.
