Two men have been arrested following a large drugs seizure in the South East.

An operation by the Kilkenny/Carlow Drugs Unit, targeting the sale and supply of controlled drugs, resulted in a property outside Callan, Co Kilkenny, being searched under warrant on Monday night, October 14.

A sophisticated grow house was discovered. €3,000 worth of harvested cannabis ready for sale was located along with €65,000 worth of cannabis plants at an advanced stage of growth.
