The goods seized include handbags, purses and other accessory items.

An Garda Síochána said they will continue to target traders selling counterfeit goods in the lead up to Christmas and urged the public to be aware of the risks associated with purchasing fake goods and products.

In other advice for the public, gardaí today reminded people to transport Christmas trees safely:

The Road Safety Authority warns that “unsecured or inadequately secured loads can shift when a vehicle is in motion” and may cause:

  • Loss of control of vehicle
  • Objects to fall on or hit people
  • Road obstruction or collision where a driver is required to swerve to avoid fallen items
