The High Court has further adjourned an application by the US to extradite former Workers' Party President Sean Garland.

Mr Garland is accused of involvement in a large-scale operation to make high quality counterfeit US dollars.

US authorities claim the 75-year-old from Beldonstown, Brownstown in Navan, Co Meath, conspired with others outside the US in a counterfeiting operation involving almost perfect copies of dollars.

The case was adjourned until 2 December.
