A JOINT OPERATION between Gardaí and Revenue agents has led to the seizure of more than €200,000 worth of fake designer shoes, handbags and make-up, destined for shops and markets, two weeks before Christmas.

Searches were carried out yesterday at addresses in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, Gardaí said.
