Revenue says it has seized smuggled cigarettes worth €1 million at Dublin Port.
Two million cigarettes were found concealed in a shipping container that had originated in Dubai.
The consignment containing the smuggled cigarettes - which were branded 'Richman' - was addressed to Dundalk and said to contain 'household goods'.
Revenue officers selected the container for examination following routine profiling.
Officials say the cigarettes represent a potential €890,000 loss to the Exchequer.
Revenue adds that it "continues to target the illicit tobacco trade, with a view to disrupting the supply chain, seizing the illicit product, and prosecuting those responsible."
