Notorious criminal Ger Dundon is scheduled to appear before court this morning charged with assault and road traffic offences.

He was one of three men arrested by gardai after a high-speed chase in Limerick city on Sunday night.

Gardai last night confirmed they had charged a man in connection with "non fatal offences against the person and road traffic offences".

The man, understood to be Dundon (30), is due to appear before Limerick District Court this morning.

He was arrested by officers from the Limerick Division, who were carrying out an operation targeting organised crime in the city and county.

During the operation, gardai chased a high-powered Audi car from the Ballyclough area of Ballysheedy to Father Russell Road in Limerick city at 11.45am.

The vehicle lost control and crashed into a wall.

Disorder

The three men were arrested and detained at Henry Street and Roxboro Road Garda Stations.

A gun and a car were seized for technical examination during the course of the operation.

Two of the men were charged in connection with this investigation and appeared before Limerick District Court yesterday afternoon.

Dundon was released early from prison in 2014 having been jailed in 2011 for five years for violent disorder as part of a bid to extort money from former Limerick nightclub promoter Mark Heffernan in 2010.

Since his release from prison, Dundon has spent most of his time in England with members of his extended family.

Meanwhile, Dundon's former partner April Collins has married Cratloe rapist Thomas O'Neill.

Ms Collins became a State witness and her evidence was crucial in bringing down the notorious Dundon gang.
