On the same date during a search of Mr Pamazane’s house at 64 Borris Little cocaine to the value of €30 was found, and €700 worth of cannabis for sale or supply. A quantity of amphetamine was also found in the house.

Defending solicitor, Barry Fitzgerald said that the sale and supply of the cannabis was for among a group of friends.
