It was found by revenue officers on Wednesday when they stopped and searched a man in his 40s and a woman in her 30s.

They were travelling to Budapest via Dusseldorf, and the money was found in hand luggage.

Officers seized the cash, which Revenue says is suspected to be "the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity".
