Revenue Officers seize €6,000 worth of alcohol at Dublin Port

Revenue officers have seized more than €6,000 worth of smuggled alcohol in three searches at Dublin Port.

Officers discovered more than 540 litres of wine, beer and spirits in the routine operations in Dublin Port over the weekend and this morning.

They found the smuggled alcohol hidden in the loads when they stopped and searched a van and two trucks that had disembarked from ferries coming from the UK.

The three drivers, all men in their 30s and 40s, were questioned and the alcohol was seized.
