They were individually wrapped, and - in what's been described as a contraband click and collect service - each intended recipient's name was written on the packages.

It's understood the drugs, alcohol and phones had come into the prison on a suppliers vehicle - with members of the Kinahan Crime Gang believed to be linked to the smuggling operation.

The Irish Prison Service has launched an investigation along with An Garda Siochana.

A man in his 40s has been arrested in connection with the seizure.

He's being detained at Mountjoy Garda Station.
