The seizures of smuggled goods at Rosslare Europort have become a regular occurrence and the latest reported took place last Tuesday as a result of routine operations.
Revenue officers seized almost 51,500 litres of beer at Rosslare Europort. The smuggled alcohol has an estimated retail value of almost €205,000, representing a potential loss to the Exchequer of over €96,000.
The alcohol was discovered following the search of two unaccompanied trailers that had arrived on a Ferry from Dunkirk, France.
Investigations into these seizures are ongoing.
