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

It's after the seizure of drugs 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-thousand 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 the same night.

They seized €76,000 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 are due before a special sitting of Cork District Court.


Separately, 24-year-old man arrested on Thursday in Tallaght is also in court this morning.

He was detained in an operation by detectives from the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau in Killinarden.

Follow-up searches found €1.6 million euro worth of drugs in Co Meath.
