Two NI men have been charged with the possession of a firearm with intent to commit a robbery in Dublin.

The Londonderry pair face the charges over the robbery of a cash delivery guard in Dublin this Wednesday.

Mr Deery is also accused of membership of an illegal organisation, "styling itself the Irish Republican Army".

Neither man said anything when formally charged at Dublin's Special Criminal Court. The court remanded both in custody until 24 June.

The two men were arrested after a cash box was stolen from a security guard making a delivery at Prussia Street in north Dublin.

The box was later recovered.
