1.7m euro cigarette stash found

Customs officers and gardai have seized 1.7 million euro worth of illegal cigarettes.

The illicit cargo of around four million cigarettes was recovered in Wolfhill, Co Laois.

They were hidden in a container that had arrived earlier in Dublin Port.

The seizure was part of Revenue's ongoing operations targeting the supply and sale of illegal cigarettes.

Four people have been questioned about the haul by customs officials.

A file on the case is being prepared for the DPP.
