Gardai pursued the car through parts of the city centre

TWO young men are being questioned following a high speed pursuit in Limerick city earlier today.

The men were arrested shortly before 11am after a 01-registered Opel Astra was stopped by members of the armed Regional Support Unit near the Strand Hotel.

It is understood gardai encountered the car short time earlier at Athlunkard Street and that a high speed pursuit followed through parts of the city centre.

At least one vehicle was struck at Arthur’s Quay while the culprits also broke a red light while being pursued. 

The occupants of the Astra were taken to Henry Street garda station following their arrest.
