A criminal gang who were caught trying to extract cocaine from a duvet lining that was posted from Brazil have been jailed for up to twelve years.

The court heard how the operation at a house in Cork involved the gang using an industrial cleaning agent to leach cocaine from the duvet.

It had been soaked in the drug and posted from Brazil to an address in Clondalkin in 2017.

37 year old Sean MacManus from Burrowfield Road in Baldoyle was described as the main organiser of the operation and was sentenced to 12 years in jail.

Two others got ten years while a fourth was given a five year term.
