A man in his 60s was arrested at the scene, a house in Moyvane, this afternoon by gardaí from Listowel following a search of the premises.


The search uncovered cannabis plants “in various stages of maturity” and dried cannabis with a combined estimated street value of up to €350,000, a Garda spokesperson said this evening.

The scene has been preserved pending a technical examination.
