By Dan Walsh

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.

These seizures are 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.
