Two men are due to appear in court today in connection with a drugs seizure worth nearly €800,000 in Cork on Friday.

The two men in their mid-40s from Mahon and Togher, were taken into custody when detectives stopped and searched a car on the Lower Glanmire Road near Kent Railway Station at around quarter past 5 on Friday evening.

Officers found 5.5 kilos of cannabis herb with a street value of €110,000 in the car which was then removed to a secure location for a forensic examination.

In a follow-up search operation of a house in the Ballyphehane area, detectives seized a further 34kgs of cannabis herb, with an estimated street value of €680,000.

Gardaí believe the drugs were destined for the local Cork market with the discovery being the largest drugs seizure in Cork so far this year by members of the Cork City Divisional Drugs Squad.

Both men, who were detained at Mayfield Garda station, are due at a special sitting of Cork District Court later today
