A major garda search operation is continuing between Stranorlar and Convoy after three men fled from a garda checkpoint last night.
At around seven o’clock, gardai stopped a car in which they say four men were seen acting suspiciously.
One man was arrested at the scene and brought to Letterkenny Garda Station. Three men fled the scene, and are still at large. We understand a firearm has been recovered, and a possible link with dissident republicans is being investigated
Superintendent Vincent O’Brien says the search for the three men  is being concentrated in the areas of Cooladawson, Gortnaletragh and Cavan Lower.
