Early Christmas present for State following Revenue operation at Shannon Airport

The substantial cash sum was concealed in a Christmas present

The State was given an early Christmas present this Wednesday following an operation at Shannon Airport.

Some €27,000 in cash which was concealed as a Christmas present was seized by Revenue officers at the airport.

As a result of routine profiling, Revenue officers searched the checked-in luggage of an Irish national in her 30s flying from Shannon to Malaga.

The search resulted in the discovery of two bundles of cash concealed as a Christmas present.

The officers were granted a three-month Cash Detention Order following the seizure at the airport this Wednesday. The order was granted at Ennis District Court, by Judge Patrick Durkin.
