A man remains in Garda custody this morning after he was arrested during an incident at a Crumlin church yesterday evening.

A large Garda presence, including armed officers, and Dublin Fire Brigade were at St Agnes’ Church in Crumlin village for a sustained period of time as negotiations continued in an attempt to talk the man into surrendering himself.
