Revenue officers seized approximately 23,600 litres of beer at Rosslare Europort following the search of an unaccompanied trailer that had arrived on a ferry from Dunkirk, France last Friday.
The smuggled alcohol had an estimated retail value of more than €94,000, representing a potential loss to the Exchequer of over €44,000.
Investigations into these seizures are ongoing.
The seizure is part of Revenue’s ongoing operations targeting the shadow economy and smuggling. If businesses, or members of the public, have any information regarding smuggling, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
