Two Limerick brothers who were refused bail at the weekend after being charged over the seizure of a large batch of heroin are due to appear in court again tomorrow.

Brian and Kieran Collopy are scheduled to appear on remand before Limerick District Court at 10.30am.

The brothers appeared before a special sitting of the court last Saturday charged with having heroin for sale or supply.

The drugs seized in a Garda raid on a house in St Mary's Park, Limerick, last Tuesday have an estimated street value of €50,000. Officers from Henry Street and Mayorstone in Limerick, backed up by members of the force's armed Regional Support Unit, raided the house as part of a planned operation targeting the sale and supply of illegal drugs in Limerick.

Brian Collopy (43) of Kilonan, Ballysimon, Co Limerick, and Kieran Collopy (40) of St Ita's Street, St Mary's Park, were each charged with one count of possession of heroin. They are also each charged with possession of heroin for sale or supply.
