THE case of two men who are charged in connection with a significant drugs seizure in Lisnagry last month, has been adjourned for four weeks.

Kieran Nevin, aged 35, of Oliver Plunkett Street, St Mary’s Park, Limerick and Shane Ferguson, aged 44, of Meadowbrook, Mill Road, Corbally are each accused of possession of cannabis herb for the purpose of sale or supply.

The street value of the drugs, which were seized at Annagh, Lisnagry on May 24, last, is alleged to be in excess of €1.5m.

At Limerick District Court, Sgt Donal Cronin said directions were not yet available from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Solicitor John Hebert did not oppose an application to adjourn both cases until July 10, next.

Nevin was previously refused bail and although Ferguson was granted bail he has not been able to meet the conditions imposed by the court, which impose a large independent surety.
