Eight people deported as gardaí mount immigration operation in Louth

All eight have been repatriated since the incident last week.

AN IMMIGRATION OPERATION designed to catch people illegally staying in Ireland resulted in eight people being deported.

A garda checkpoint was put in place in Dundalk, Louth, near the border with the North where documents of those suspected of being here illegally were checked. The operation was carried out last week.

The eight people had travelled from Britain to Northern Ireland and were attempting to come to the Republic.

Gardai confirmed that the incident took place and said the eight people had been repatriated to their country of origin.
