Share this article


Smuggled cigarettes worth more than €4.5 million have been seized by Revenue officers in Dublin Port.

The estimated 8.3 million cigarettes were found on board a ship that had arrived from Rotterdam.

They were in a shipping container said to contain car parts.

The seized cigarettes were branded 'RGD Magnum' and 'Mark 1'.

When sold on the black market they would have meant a loss to the Exchequer of €3.6 million.

Revenue says the seizure was part of an intelligence-led operation, in co-operation with other agencies here and overseas.
