The refugees believed to be from Afghanistan were found in a shipping container and are now believed to be getting processed at immigration.

It is as of yet unknown where the container arrived from.

This is the second discovery of refugees at the port in the past three days after nine male refugees from Syria were found in a truck on the New Ross to Waterford Road.

The container had arrived from Cherbourg, France.
