Irish police have arrested two men in their 20s from Northern Ireland after 60kg of cannabis was found in Rosslare in County Wexford.
The drugs were discovered concealed in a consignment of tiles on a Northern Ireland-registered trailer on a ferry from Cherbourg.
Customs officers said it had a street value of 1.2 million euros (£1m).
A further 120 kilos of cannabis worth 2.4m euros (£2m) was seized on Saturday in County Meath.
Two men were arrested during that Garda operation in Oldcastle.
