Revenue Seize €27K Cash At Shannon Airport

Revenue officers have been granted a three-month Cash Detention Order after discovering over €27,000 in cash hidden in luggage at Shannon Airport.

The money was found on Tuesday, as part of routine profiling by Revenue officers who searched the checked-in luggage of an Irish national in her 30s, who was due to fly to Malaga.

The money, in two bundles of cash, was concealed as a Christmas present.


At a hearing in Ennis District Court, Revenue officers were granted permission to retain the money for three months by Judge Patrick Durcan.
