Revenue seized over 65,000 litres of beer yesterday

Revenue officers have seized 65,772 litres of beer from three trucks at Dublin Port, it has been revealed.

The beer was discovered and detained when, following routine profiling, officers stopped and searched three German registered trucks as they disembarked a ferry from Zeebrugge last Saturday.

Further enquiries confirmed that the alcohol was undeclared.

The seized beer is valued at €193,150 and represents a potential loss to the Exchequer of €134,175.

Investigations are ongoing.

Revenue has urged businesses or members of the public with any information on the smuggling or sale of illegal alcohol, to contact them in confidence on Freephone 1800 295 295.
