423

A six-strong “expert” crew from Portugal was flown in by an international drug gang to set up and operate an industrial-scale cannabis growhouse in the middle of Dublin city. The gang is headed by a major trafficker with links to the senior players in the Byrne organised crime group, the Irish arm of the Kinahan crime cartel. The six Portuguese, which included a juvenile, were among nine people arrested in the operation, which involved swoops in Dublin and Co Wexford.
