Cannabis with an estimated street value of €1m has been seized in Dublin's north inner city.

Revenue's Customs Service and gardaí from the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau discovered the haul of 50kg of herbal cannabis, which originated in Spain, during an intelligence-led operation.

Three men - aged between 24 and 34 years - were arrested and are being questioned at Mountjoy and Store Street Garda Stations.

"The drugs were concealed in a consignment of soap from Spain," said a Garda spokesman.

"Investigations are on-going."
