BREAKING: Ecstasy and weed seized ahead of ‘Rag Week’ festivities


Drugs worth €50,000 were seized today and two men aged in their 20s were arrested, following a search conducted by Revenue’s Customs Drugs Law Enforcement and the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau.

Four thousand ecstasy pills and a quantity of cannabis were seized in the Galway area.
