There's been a massive drugs seizure on a cargo ship in Limerick.

Cocaine, believed to be worth tens of millions of euro, has been found on board.

This ship docked into Foynes Pork in Limerick yesterday and was searched by customs officers and Gardaí. They found  a “significant” volume of suspected cocaine, understood to be worth in the tens of millions of euro.

The 20,000 tonne vessel is believed to have been carrying grain as well as the drugs.

The operation is still ongoing and further searches will be carried out this morning.

This is the second major cocaine seizure at sea this year following the seizure of €157 million worth of the drug from the MV Matthew in September.
