A Dublin man has appeared in court charged with drugs offences following the seizure of more than €200,000 worth of cannabis.

John Barry (37) was allegedly found with the cannabis following a planned search by the Tallaght District Drugs Unit.

A garda told a court that Mr Barry said “I apologise” after he was charged.

Judge Anthony Halpin remanded Mr Barry on bail to a date in June for DPP’s directions on the charges after gardai said they had no objections to bail.

The accused, with an address at Russell Downs in Tallaght, appeared before Dublin District Court charged with possession of cannabis herb as well as having the drug for sale or supply.

The estimated value of the cannabis, pending analysis, is €220,000.

The drugs were allegedly found following a search of an address at Russell Downs in Tallaght on Tuesday.

Garda Stephen Coller said Mr Barry was charged, was handed a true copy of the charge sheets and in reply, after caution, he said “I apologise”.

The garda said that he had no objection to bail, subject to a number of conditions.

Judge Halpin remanded Mr Brady on bail in his own bond of €200, and ordered him to sign on twice a week at Tallaght Garda Station.

He must also reside at an agreed address and notify gardai if he plans to travel outside the jurisdiction.
