Three Men Appear In Court Over Drugs Charges In Cork And Dublin


Three men are appearing in court in Cork and Dublin this morning after being arrested on drugs charges earlier this week.

It’s after drugs found in a car in Cork led to the discovery of a suspected grow house in Dublin.

At nine o’clock on Thursday evening Gardaí from the Roads Policing Unit stopped a car on the M8 in Co Cork.

They found 20,000 euro worth of cannabis herb in the boot – along with a thousand euro in cash. Two men in their twenties and thirties were arrested at the scene.

As part of the investigation, gardaí from Finglas raided a house in Hollystown in Dublin 15.

They seized 76,000 euro worth of suspected cannabis herb, 14,000 euro worth of plants in four pop-up tents, along with ventilation equipment, plant food, and counterfeit currency.

A man in his thirties was arrested at the scene.

He’s appearing before Dublin District Court this morning – while the men detained with the car in Fermoy are due before a special sitting of Cork District Court.
