The drugs were found in Dublin thanks to two specialist sniffer dogs.

Drugs destined for an address in Longford were seized by revenue officials this week.

As a result of routine profiling, Revenue officers examining parcels at two premises in Dublin seized just over 6.9 kgs of various types of drugs including herbal cannabis, cannabis resin, heroin, methamphetamine, butane honey oil and hash cakes, with an estimated value of approximately €194,000.

The illegal drugs were discovered concealed in parcels labelled as 'stickers', 'pet clothes', 'clothes', 'pencils', 'shoes' and 'antique glassware', that originated in the United States, Spain, Switzerland, Portugal, France, Canada, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom
