Smuggled cigarettes worth over €1 million were found hidden in a shipping container today.
Revenue Officers seized the "Richman" branded cigarettes that had arrived in Dublin Port concealed in a 20-foot shipping container which originated in Dubai.
The consignment had been marked as household goods which were addressed to Dundalk and had been selected for examination after routine profiling.
The contraband cigarettes have an estimated retail value of over €1 million and represent a potential loss to the Exchequer of around €890,000.
