A garda raid on a 'grow-house' in a remote rural area near Kilgarvan netted a haul of cannabis worth an estimated €28,000.

Seventeen mature plants and cannabis buds were discovered by members of the Killarney Drugs Corps who arrested a man in connection with the raid on the rented house.

A male, who is not local, was arrested and taken to Killarney Garda Station for questioning. 

The drugs were discovered after gardaí obtained a search warrant for the property and found a room that had been converted for growing cannabis. 

Full grown cannabis plants and harvested cannabis was seized during the raid.
