Revenue seize €191,000 cash at Dublin Port

Last Friday, (10/05/2024), at Dublin District Court, Revenue officers were granted a three-month cash detention order by Judge Gerard Jones. This followed the seizure on Thursday, (09/05/2024), of cash to the value of €191,000 at Dublin Port.

The discovery was made as a result of risk profiling, when Revenue officers searched a vehicle which have arrived from Holyhead. It is suspected that the cash is the proceeds of, or intended for use in, criminal activity and is detained by Revenue in accordance with proceeds of crime legislation.

Investigations are ongoing.

This seizure is part of Revenue's ongoing work targeting smuggling and shadow economy activity. If businesses, or members of the public have any information, they can contact Revenue in confidence on Confidential Phone Number 1800 295 295.
