Two men have been arrested in Co Kildare after gardaí seized cannabis worth €230,000 following a planned search.

Members of the Kildare district and the Garda Dog Unit searched a house in Rathangan, Co Kildare at around 3pm yesterday.

A man in his 30s and a man in his 20s were arrested at the scene.

They are due to appear before Naas District Court today.

Earlier today, two men were arrested in the Wexford area as part of an investigation targeting the sale and supply of drugs.

The seizure was made after gardaí stopped a car at O'Rahilly Place in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Both men, who are in their 30s, were taken to Wexford garda station where they were held for questioning.

They were due in Gorey District Court earlier today.
