We have uncovered what sort of industry the state is incentivizing.

Excellent. Compliments to the idiots in charge.

The only shocking bit is that it got found out.

Will this one be buried like the Slave Farm they discovered in the neck of the woods a while back?

Shouldn't wonder....:|

This one is on a massive scale.

A machine churning out 250,000 fags an hour.

Up to 80 tonnes of 'baccie found onsite.

Dodgy, Irish made Mayfare ciggies on sale all over the EU.

Poor Slab must be wetting himself!

Will the story you found on the RTE website be buried, just like the other story which you were able to tell us about, despite it being buried?

So its a cigarette company so what.
Costing Revenue a million euro a month in lost taxes.

Just imagine how many badly needed synthetic hockey pitches that money could fund!

Surely a lot of these were destined for export. If so, where is the loss to Revenue? They would never have been manufactured legally here, in the first place, so no loss on that. The only loss would seem to be on those sold here...

I dunno which is worse, the illegal cigarette factory or the three exclamation marks in the thread title (repeated in its inline text)!
Not to mention the incorrect spelling of cigarette, in places.

This would appear to be Criminality on a Huge scale

- this was not small time operators making a few yo yos on the QT

Be sure its controlled by a Major international crime gang

- but will they ever catch the real Players .......:confused:

My geography teacher never told me that Meath had a climate like Virginia.


...and anyway, without startup businesses some of these people may have been begging in the streets. So three cheers for their work ethic.
