Patrick Kennedy, 65, of South Earl Street in Dublin 8 and Gary Yeung, 31, of Bawnmore View, Crossagalla, in Limerick face two charges each and have been remanded in custody until Friday.
Both men were arrested over the weekend and were officially charged on Monday morning.
Detective Sergeant Padraig Boyce told the court that he met Patrick Kennedy on Sunday at his flat in Dublin 8 and arrested him at Clondalkin Garda Station.
He faces a charge of IRA membership relating to Saturday 14 September and the unlawful possession of two revolvers on James Street in Dublin on the same date.
When the counts were officially put to him at the Criminal Courts on Monday, he made no reply.
He said nothing during the hearing except to confirm his name.
Yeung was also arrested on Sunday and two counts were put to him in court.
He is accused of the unlawful possession of two revolvers on James Street, also on Saturday, and two rounds of ammunition at Bawnmore View, Crossagalla, Limerick.
His reply was that he had nothing to say.
Both men have been remanded in custody to appear again on Friday when bail applications may be made on their behalf.
