Revenue officers seized 204 litres of alcohol, 1.9 kilos of Chesterfield-branded tobacco, and 1,600 L&M cigarettes at Dublin Port yesterday (27 February).

The wine, beer, spirit and tobacco products were found in two transit vans that arrived separately into Dublin Port, from France and Holyhead, respectively.

Revenue says that the seized goods have a total retail value of approximately €6,300, representing an estimated potential loss of €4,250 to the Exchequer.
