Two men in their 60s have been arrested following a drugs seizure in Donegal.

Gardaí from Ballintra, Ballyshannon and the Donegal Drugs Unit carried out a search at a farm house at Grabanagh in Ballintra at around 10.30pm yesterday as part of an intelligence-led operation.

Around 300 cannabis plants, with an estimated potential street value of €220,000, were seized during the search.

The two men are being detained at Ballyshannon Garda Station, and can be held for up to seven days.
