Investigations are ongoing into the discovery.

The following day, the Claremorris Divisional Unit seized cannabis with an estimated value of €4,000 during a planned search of a residence in Claremorris town.

Gardai have confirmed to Midwest News that a man in his 20s is assisting them with their enquiries and a file is being prepared for the DPP.

On Saturday morning, a house in Swinford was searched under warrant, and a small quantity of cannabis was seized.
