A FILE is to be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions after two Limerick men were g charged in connection with a significant drugs seizure at Shannon Airport,

Thomas Tully, aged 42, of John Carew Park, Southill and John Byrnes, aged 42, of Georgian Manor, Clare Street were both arrested at Shannon Airport on Easter Sunday after they disembarked from a flight, which had landed from Spain.

The two men were initially detained by Customs officers following positive reactions from sniffer dog Ollie.

Following their arrest, they were taken to University Hospital, Limerick where it is alleged that, between them, they ‘passed’ around 100 pellets which contained cocaine.

Investigating gardai say the drugs seized as a result of the operation are worth around €60,000.

Mr Tully, who appeared before Ennis Court last Friday and Mr Byrnes, who appeared before a special court sitting on Monday were granted bail subject to a number of conditions.

They must live at the home addresses in Limerick and obey a curfew.

Both men were also ordered to surrender their passports to gardai.

They are due to appear in court again on July 9, next when directions are expected to be available from the Director of Public Prosecutions.
