The seizure took place as part of an operation targeting organised crime.
Members of the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau (GNDOCB) intercepted two vehicles in the Blanchardstown area of Dublin and during a search of the vehicles, €414,000 in cash was discovered and seized.
Three males, aged 38, 41, and 42 years, were arrested and are currently detained at Blanchardstown Garda Station.
