Gardaí in Co Kildare have seized kegs of beer, spirits and bar equipment after visiting a suspected shebeen and discovering a “fully operational bar”.

As part of their ongoing Operation Navigation, officers raided the suspected shebeen in Athy at around 8pm yesterday evening after being alerted through social media.

They found a fully fitted bar with stools, tables, chairs, a 70-inch flat screen TV and a full-size pool table.

The shebeen also had several beer taps, a cooler and kegs, a smoking area, store room and toilet.



A full investigation is now underway and a file is being prepared for the DPP.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone with information on illegal shebeens to contact their local Garda station.
