GARDAÍ HAVE DISCOVERED a magic mushroom laboratory after searching a flat in Drimnagh, Dublin.

At around 4pm on Tuesday, gardaí from Sundrive Road searched a flat in Davitt House under a section 26 drugs warrant in relation to the cultivation of Psilocybin Mushrooms (Magic Mushrooms).

On the premises, gardaí found fully grown mushrooms and a laboratory containing various chemical compounds and liquids used in the cultivation of mushrooms.

Magic mushrooms which have a hallucinogenic effect have been illegal in Ireland since 2006.

The story which was first reported by Herald.ie earlier today said that forensic gardaí were wearing protective masks and boiler suits when they entered the flat as it was musty and full of mushroom type organisms.

A spokesperson from the Garda Press Office told TheJournal.ie that no arrests have been made and an investigation is ongoing.
