Three men have been arrested in Dublin after drugs worth nearly €37,500 were seized on the banks of the Grand Canal in Clondalkin.

Gardaí, targeting drug dealing in the area, found the three men in a tent hidden in undergrowth with cannabis, cocaine and Dimorphine.

A packaging and distribution facility was also found while 108 packets of cigarettes and tobacco products were located in a follow-up search by the Garda Dog Unit.

The three men arrested are being held in Clondalkin and Ballyfermot Garda Stations.

Sinn Féin TD Mark Ward says he's concerned about the level of activity.

The former director of Clondalkin Drugs Task Force says the cycle of addiction is continuing, even though we're in lockdown.

"Drug dealing and drug addiction doesnt take a break during the pandemic," he said.

"It's still going on, and it still needs to be monitored, and the guards need to be monitoring the canal a lot more than they have over the last few years because it's starting to get out of hand now again."
