An ex-Garda Superintendent has admitted having a large amount of cannabis for sale or supply at his home last year.

John Murphy, 61, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court, via a video link from Cloverhill Prison, to having cannabis, worth more than €13,000, for sale or supply at his home in North Dublin on 29 September 2021.

Murphy was remanded in continuing custody until 4 October for sentencing.

The court heard previously at a sitting at Dublin District Court, that Murphy's address was not read out due to security concerns.
