From the RTE website on November 3rd:
Cannabis with a potential street value of â‚¬1 million was seized by gardaÃ and Revenue Customs Service officers in Hempstown, Co Wicklow, yesterday afternoon.
The 100kg cannabis – in resin form, was smuggled from Holland. But one is given to wonder if the dealers reckoned that no one would ever think of looking in HEMPstown, or if they’d been attempting an Irish answer to the idiom “bringing coals to Newcastle”.
