Man detained as Customs sieze €20k at Shannon Airport

Up to €20,000 in cash has been seized by Revenue at Shannon Airport in Co Clare.

Officers stopped and searched a 26-year-old man yesterday during a routine operation.

He was about to board a flight to Paris.

The case came before Ennis District Court earlier where officers were granted a three-month detention order in respect of the cash to allow them carry out further investigations.
