The drug was concealed in food tins inside a shipping container.

A LARGE SHIPMENT of cannabis has been seized at Dublin Port after a sniffer dog made the find in a shipping container.

Around 99kg of cannabis resin and 44kg of the drug in its herbal form were discovered this morning. Customs officials said the cache had a potential street value of around €1.1million.

The drugs were concealed in bags of woodchip and large food tins within the container, which arrived from Holyhead. Routine profiling was also used in the search, according to the Revenue Service.

Two men, one from Britain and one from the North, were arrested and taken to Store Street Garda Station.
