Over 10 million illegal cigarettes, worth just under 8 million euro, have been seized at Rosslare Europort.

They were discovered yesterday after Revenue Officers stopped and searched an unaccompanied trailer which arrived on a ferry from Belgium.

The seizure represents a potential loss of over 6 million euro to the Exchequer.

The investigation is part of Revenue’s ongoing operation to target the shadow economy and the supply and sale of illegal tobacco products.
