An investigation has been launched after a man tried to leave Ireland with an amount of cash.
Revenue officers stopped the man in his 30’s at Shannon Airport yesterday and seized €8,700.
The Polish national was intercepted and questioned in an intelligence-led operation before he could board his flight to Krakow.
Officers seized the cash under proceeds of crime legislation.
At Ennis District Court today, Revenue officers were granted a three month detention order to facilitate further investigations.
The order allows for the cash to be held while an investigation into it’s origins are established.
