TWO MEN ARE due in court this morning charged in relation to the discovery of a growhouse in Leitrim earlier this week. 

A growhouse was discovered during a search of a rented property in the Manorhamilton area by gardaí on Tuesday night. 

Cannabis cultivation equipment along with 50 fully mature cannabis plants, 90 plants in the early stages of growth and 1kg of processed cannabis herb was seized, with a combined estimated value on €60,000.
