A major cannabis shipment, estimated to be worth up to 600,000 euros, has been seized by Ireland's customs service in Dublin port, state broadcaster RTE reported on Saturday evening.

The 30 kg of herbal cannabis was discovered by a sniffer dog on a shipment of filtration units imported from Spain, RTE said.

So far, no further details about the case have been released by customs service. But RTE said investigations are ongoing.

Last month, a major cocaine shipment, estimated to be worth up to 80 million euros, has been seized on board a yacht off Ireland's southwest coast.

The shipment was understood to have originated in South America, while the yacht set sail from the Caribbean. The seizure of around a tonne of cocaine was believed to be one of the biggest drugs seizures at sea in Europe this year. Enditem
