The vans were searched based on routine profiling.

The drivers - a 39-year-old Polish man and a 35-year-old Lithuanian man - were questioned.

The seized goods have a total retail value of around €6,300, representing an potential loss to the exchequer of €4,250.

The seizures are part of Revenue's ongoing operations targeting the illegal importation, supply and sale of alcohol and tobacco.
