The deal, which involved three members of a Limerick gang and a well known Dublin based drug trafficker, was intercepted by Gardai from the National Drugs Unit on the Naas Road.

The three were in Dublin to collect the drugs when the Garda Drugs Unit, assisted by Limerick Gardai, made the arrests. Three are being detained at Clondalkin Garda station while another is being held at Tallaght Garda station.One of the arrested is thought to be a woman.

The woman and two of the men being held at Clondalkin Garda station are due before Kilmainham District Court Monday morning.

All four are believed to be aged between 28 and 42 years old.

On Friday Gardai in Clare seized €53,000 worth of cannabis, ecstasy and amphetamines during raids in Ennis.

All four will now appear before Kilmainham District Court Monday morning charged with possession of heroin with intent to supply.
