Gardaí arrested a man and recovered a legally held shotgun yesterday after a domestic dispute triggered the shooting of five horses and two dogs.

The man, in his 30s, was arrested in the Kanturk area of north Cork at lunchtime yesterday after a massive Garda manhunt over the previous eight hours. The manhunt involved uniformed gardaí supported by m embers of the armed Regional Support Unit (RSU).

He was taken to Mallow Garda station for questioning. He could be held for an initial period of 24 hours but it was expected he would be referred for medical and psychiatric evaluation.

The incident began in the early hours of yesterday when a domestic dispute erupted at a property outside Newmarket.

It is understood the man had a row with his girlfriend, who is a foreign national.

Another family member was alerted and apparently attempted to calm the man, who was becoming extremely agitated. However, the row escalated and the man armed himself with a shotgun. He then shot two dogs and fives horses outside the property.

The man then fled in a Toyota car which he later crashed. He then walked across fields and woodland while armed with the shotgun.

Gardaí were alerted and began a major search operation, focused on the Newmarket and Kanturk areas. Around noon, he was spotted outside Kan turk. Gardaí rushed to the scene and the man agreed to surrender.

He was arrested without incident and no one was injured.

A file on the matter will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
