ILLICIT ALCOHOL SEIZURES DOUBLE IN IRELAND LAST YEAR

The amount of illicit alcohol seized at Ireland’s ports and airports doubled last year.

In 2018, Rosslare Europort as well as Dublin, Cork, Knock and Shannon, had a total of €1.24 million worth of alcohol seized.

That figure rose to €2.5 million last year.

The vast majority was recovered at Dublin Port.

Revenue say increased co-operation with other European states has lead to more seizures at Irish airports and ports last year.
