Documents and mobile phones are also being examined, while €144,000 has been frozen in a bank account.

No arrests were made.

In an 'separate and unrelated' search in Dublin, two cars, documents, phones and five watches (including Rolex and Breitling watches) were seized at a house in the Marrowbone Lane area.

Gardaí say that search related to "a target believed to be connected with suspected members of an organised crime gang involved in the drugs trade".

There were also no arrests made in relation to that search.
