Over 20kg of cocaine worth €1.5m was found in the back of a vehicle at Rosslare Harbour.
The vehicle It was stopped and searched and two men in their 20s were arrested at the scene.
Labour’s Aodhán Ó Ríordáin has welcomed the seizure:
“Giving information works,” he said. “This seizure wouldn’t have happened without communities and people with information working with the authorities.
“It’s a great story, it’s extremely welcome news but obviously there is a huge amount of drugs in our country (and) coming into our country every day.
“This is a seizure that has to be welcomed but it only happens when people work with the authorities and give whatever information that they have,” he added.
