The two, who are Vietnamese nationals aged 32 and 43, were arrested after €1.6m worth of cannabis was discovered at what investigators have described as a “substantial” grow house.

The grow house was discovered at an industrial premises in the Waterford Airport Business Park during an intelligence-led operation at around 6pm on Thursday.
