Shortly after 10.30am on Thursday (16 April), Gardaí from the Kerry Divisional Drugs Unit, assisted by Killarney Gardaí and the Southern Region Dog Unit, executed a search warrant at a house and its land outside of Killarney town.

250 suspected cannabis plants - in the early stages of their growth - were discovered. Gardaí estimate that in their mature state, the plants would have been worth €206,000.
