A truck driver has appeared in court charged in connection with the seizure of €1m worth of cocaine at Dublin Port over the weekend.
Maurice McCreesh of Main Street, Fork Hill in Newry, Co. Down was arrested after he arrived on a ferry from the UK on Saturday morning.
Gardaí objected to bail because of the seriousness of the charge, but Judge Anthony Halpin agreed to release him under strict conditions.
They include a €10,000 cash lodgement and the surrender of his passport.
He will also have to sign on daily at his local Garda Station and abide by a curfew.
The 37-year-old father of three was remanded in custody with consent to bail and is due back in court later this week.
