A file is being prepared for the DPP in relation to the find.

A Garda spokesperson said that the raids were part of their continuing operation to disrupt the sale and supply of drugs in Tipperary.

The latest raids follow on from the seizure of €50,000 worth of cocaine near Abbeyleix, County Laois, earlier this month as part of the war on drugs in the Premier County.

They were later charged and appeared before a special district court sitting in Nenagh.
