A father of four's been accused of having a “central role” in a “sophisticated operation” following the seizure of over €3m euro worth of cannabis and cocaine in Dublin on Wednesday.

Philip Lawless (47) of River Forest Park, Leixlip in County Kildare is charged with possessing cannabis and cocaine for sale or supply at a storage facility in Ballymount Industrial Estate, and having cannabis for sale or supply at a property on Beresford Street in the north inner city.

Dublin District court today heard Mr Lawless made no reply to the charges.

A bail application's been denied and he's been remanded to appear again at Cloverhill District Court on Tuesday.
