Ireland’s borders are very much open for trade and tourism. But Ireland’s unique geographical location between Europe and North America also makes it a magnet for gangs of organised smugglers attempting to move drugs, money, guns, cars, tobacco, fuel, and even exotic animals between continents and across the border into the UK.

With millions of people, together with thousands of tonnes of cargo, arriving on its shores from locations all around the world, it’s the role of Ireland’s customs authorities to keep control. Protecting the country’s 3000 km of rugged coastline, as well as helping to police the border with Northern Ireland is a constant struggle, and in this series we’ll see how customs and other forces work together, with the help of ace-sniffer dog Stella, to keep the country safe.
