My geography teacher never told me that Meath had a climate like Virginia.


...and anyway, without startup businesses some of these people may have been begging in the streets. So three cheers for their work ethic.
There used to be a substrantial enough tobacco growing industry in the old days, mostly in the East of Ireland, including Meath.

We need to grow marijuana and export it globally.
As each country legalises it, we should have an industry in place to supply the inevitable demand.
Tobacco is so last century.

I find that the application of a nitrogen-based fertiliser encourages growth. Why not give it a try yourself?
If it's the leaves you want, then you're quite right about the high nitrogen content you want in the fertiliser. On the other hand, if you want strong bllooming plants, you need to make sure there's also enough potassium and phosphorus.

This one is on a massive scale.

A machine churning out 250,000 fags an hour.

Up to 80 tonnes of 'baccie found onsite.

Dodgy, Irish made Mayfare ciggies on sale all over the EU.

Poor Slab must be wetting himself!

God this is awful news - imaging all those poor smokers across the EU smoking these - who knows what the health risk might be? petunia

nettles are a great fertiliser, quite a pong from it, if not watered down properly it will not leave your veg, you can taste it on them

This would appear to be Criminality on a Huge scale

- this was not small time operators making a few yo yos on the QT

Be sure its controlled by a Major international crime gang

- but will they ever catch the real Players .......:confused:
Hopefully this is the straw that breaks the Camels back.

Shame they got caught. What does the State expect when they charge around €11 for a packet of cancer sticks, the black market will thrive.

The government should only put taxes on cigarettes as a disincentive. It shouldn't keep increasing the taxes every year, or else, as we have seen, criminals will enter the market to provide a cheaper alternative.
