Look at all the alcohol gardaí seized from a shebeen in Galway

Gardaí said shebeens like this one represent unfair competition for pubs who are operating lawfully.

GARDAÍ IN GALWAY raided a shebeen on Friday night and came out with this massive haul of booze.

The alcohol seizure include a significant amount of beer and cider as well as bottles of rum, gin, brandy and vodka. In a follow-up tweet, gardaí said prosecution of those involved will follow.

“Needless to say drink is securely stored in the meantime!”
