Gardai commented on the raids,
"We seized quite a large quantity of alcohol on both nights including beer and
spirits. We also seized a number of kegs, taps and fridges."

One man was arrested during the operation at the Keyes Park house for breaching the peace. Gardai said they will be holding on to the confiscated alcohol as evidence.
