Total of 22 motorists caught drug driving in Cork so far this year

Chief Supt Con Cadogan told a meeting of the Cork City and County joint policing committee (JPC) that it was not just young people who were being caught drug-driving as he had personally been at a checkpoint when a 50-year-old man tested positive for drug driving.

He said that in the first four months of this year gardaí in the city and county divisions had arrested 98 people for possession of drugs for sale or supply and a further 445 for having drugs for personal use.

The figures are roughly the same as the comparable period for 2017.

The councillor said he was particularly worried about the increased availability of drugs in the past 12 months in his hometown of Skibbereen.
