Two people have been arrested

Heroin and cocaine thought to be worth more than a million euro has been seized in Dublin.

The drugs were found during a search in the Finglas area on Monday, by Gardai targeting a gang.

Officers also seized a semi-automatic shotgun, which they spotted being handed between two vehicles.

A 31-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman are being questioned.

"This is a very significant blow to that gang," he said.

"They have been heavily involved for a number of years in Ballyfermot; primarily in heroin but also in other drugs.

"They are linked as well to major criminal gangs operating in north and west Dublin."
