Two women and a man have been granted bail after they were charged in connection with a €1m drug seizure in Co Meath.

Suspected cocaine, cannabis, and tablets were uncovered and three people were arrested following a number of searches on Thursday.

At approximately 9.20pm, gardaí from Navan Detective Unit and the Meath Divisional Drug Unit, intercepted a vehicle in Slane.

During a search of this vehicle, they located and seized about €70,000 worth of cocaine.

In a follow up search of a house in Wilkinstown, Co Meath, later that evening, gardai allegedly found about €480,000 of cannabis, as well as approximately €400,000 of suspected tablets and approximately €70,000 of suspected cocaine.

Grainne Fennessey, 30, of Tara Court Green, Navan, Co Meath was charged with possessing cocaine for sale or supply in Slane on 29 April contrary to the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Lisa Goonery, 32, from Coghalstown, Wilkinstown, and Mark Byrne, 28, of Reask Green, Navan, were charged with possessing cannabis for sale or supply in Coghalstown on the same date.

The three were brought to appear before Judge John Campbell at Dublin District Court today.

There was no objection to bail.

Their solicitors said the defendants had agreed to abide by conditions sought by investigating gardaí.

Judge Campbell ordered them to provide gardaí with their mobile phone numbers, to surrender passports and not to apply for new travel documentation, to sign on regularly at their local garda stations and to have no contact with each other.

Releasing them, he ordered the three, who remained silent during the brief hearing, to appear at Trim District Court on 1 June.

The two women were granted legal aid.

Mr Byrne, a ground worker, also made no reply when charged at Navan station, said Garda Matthew McKenna.
