They also seized €102,000 of cannabis over the past few weeks in an ongoing operation into the cultivation of drugs in West Cork.
Officers arrested a man in his late 30s and a woman in her late 20s yesterday.
On October 30, Gardaí were called to the scene of a house fire in Tullyland, Bandon, Co. Cork, and found a grow house containing €46,600 worth of cannabis plants and €8,400 worth of cannabis herb.
As part of the investigation, Gardaí from the Divisional Drugs Unit in Bandon searched three properties in the Ballinhassig area yesterday.
A second grow house was discovered at one of the properties which had around €47,000 worth of cannabis plants. Officers arrested the man and woman who are being held at Bandon and Clonakility Garda Stations under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
