Heroin and cocaine with an estimated street value of half a million euro has been seized during a raid on a house in west Dublin.

A 24-year-old man was arrested at the scene in Clondalkin and is being questioned about drug trafficking.

Investigating gardai said they recovered 3kg of heroin and 1kg of cocaine during the planned search on Tuesday evening.

The raid was part of an operation targeting west Dublin drug trafficking gangs, they said.
