A chef has admitted cultivating cannabis.
Albert Hayes, 54, with an address at North Brunswick Street, Dublin 7 pleaded guilty to a Misuse of Drugs Offences.
He admitted unlawful possession of cannabis and cultivating cannabis at his home address where gardaí found five plants during a search operation.
Judge Bryan Smyth adjourned sentencing until a date in January.
The court heard the value of the plants, if they had reached full growth, would have been €4,000.
His solicitor asked the court to note that the value of the plants was €100 because they had not been fully grown.
He said his client had been smoking cannabis but did not want to be involved with drug dealers so grew the plants instead.
