A mother of five has avoided jail for turning her home into a cannabis grow house.
Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard Karen Oakes was forced into it last year by a criminal she owed money to.
The 31-year-old of Croftwood Park, Ballyfermot had kitted out two children's bedrooms with foil-lined tents, ventilation pipes and specialist lighting.
The crop of plants was worth around €12,000.
Ms Oakes received a four-year suspended sentence.
