Two men have appeared in court in Dublin charged in connection with the seizure of 12kg of heroin, the largest find of the drug this year.

The men, aged 26 and 28, were remanded on bail to appear again in court next month.

They were both charged with possession of the drug and possession with intent to supply.

The two are 26-year-old Brian Kavanagh with an address at Wheatley Hall in Clonee in Co Meath and 28-year-old Peter Murray from Bellgree Heights, Tyrellstown in Co Dublin.

Both men have been ordered to surrender their passports and sign on three times a week at Blanchardstown Garda Station.
