Two men have been charged in connection with the seizure of almost €1.5m worth of heroin in Dublin.

The drugs were discovered after a vehicle was stopped on the Old North Road in Finglas in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Des Ryan, 52, of Belfield Springs, Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, and 64-year-old Edward Rooney of Ballinacor Beg, Roundwood, Co Wicklow, were both charged at Dublin District Court with possession of heroin and possession of the drug for sale or supply.

Judge John Coughlan remanded both men in custody with consent to bail.

They are due to appear before Cloverhill District Court on 12 April.
