The two types of drugs were concealed in parcels which originated in South Africa and were destined for an address in Dublin.

Revenue also made a number of seizures last weekend at the airport.

On Saturday, officers were granted a three-month cash detention order at the Criminal Courts of Justice.

This followed two seizures of cash worth €10,000 in denominations of Euro, US Dollars and Sterling.
