An ex-Garda Superintendent has admitted having a large amount of cannabis for sale or supply at his home last year.

John Murphy (61) pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court, via a video link from Cloverhill Prison, to having cannabis, worth more than €13,000, for sale or supply at his home in North Dublin on September 29, 2021.

Murphy was remanded in continuing custody until October 4 next for sentence.

The court heard previously at a sitting at Dublin District Court, that Murphy’s address was not read out due to security concerns.
