A man was arrested in Carlow yesterday after a stand-off with armed Gardaí.

They say a domestic dispute was taking place between a 36-year-old male and a 50-year-old woman.

The man then barricaded himself into the house.

The Regional Armed Support Unit and a trained negotiator attended the scene and the situation eventually came to a close at about 4 o’clock.

No-one was injured and the man was arrested and taken to Carlow Garda Station.
