Gardai in Mayo have been aggressively targeting the sale and supply of illegal drugs during 2018, with 51 detections so far this year - more than double last year's number.

There have been 163 arrests in relation to the possession of drugs for personal use - up 46% on last year - while 14 people were detected cultivating drugs in 2018 - similar to last year's figure.

The focus this year has particularly been on detecting those involved in the sale and supply of illegal drugs.

That's according to the Chief Superintendent for the Mayo Garda division, Pat Diskin.
