A 43-year-old unemployed carpenter has pleaded guilty before Galway Circuit Criminal Court to having quantities of cannabis and cannabis resin for sale or supply to others at his home last year, which Gardaí believe has a street value of €1.2 million. Vincent Glynn, from Limehill, Tynagh, Co. Galway pleaded guilty to the drug dealing offence, which occurred at his home on 12 June last year.
Mr Bernard Madden, SC, defending, said his client, who has been in custody since his arrest last June, wanted sentencing to take place as soon as possible.
Judge Raymond Groarke remanded Mr Glynn in continuing custody to await sentence on 11 March next.
Meanwhile, his co-accused, Cormac O’Halloran (35), 73 Glasgow Park, Limerick, faces similar charges involving the unlawful possession of quantities of cannabis and cannabis resin at Limehill, Tynagh on 12 June last and with having the drugs for sale or supply to another on the same date.
Judge Groarke had remanded Mr O’Halloran when he appeared before the court last January, on continuing bail as granted by the High Court last year on lodgement of €10,000 cash, to appear before the court again on 2 March next for trial.
