Man arrested in Laois after dramatic Dublin Kildare garda chase

A man in his 30's was arrested in Portlaoise following a garda chase from Dublin through Kildare overnight.

The man was arrested near Carn townland, an area between Portlaoise and Emo off the M7 motorway shortly after 3am in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The chase ensued following an incident of criminal damage in Killinarden Heights in Tallaght.

The man failed to stop for Gardai which resulted in a high-speed M7 motorway chase through the busy roadworks in Kildare and into the Portlaoise area before he was caught. 

Gardaí have said he is currently detained at Tallaght Garda Station.
