When stormy conditions at sea overturned an inflatable boat, a rescue mission became a recovery operation for a €440 million consignment of cocaine; Ireland’s largest ever seizure.

Similar twists of fate, as well as significant work by the state over the past two decades, have resulted in other massive drug seizures.

Nothing to Declare includes major stories: a man on trial for drugs importation while his wife was dying in Panama, the arrival of the Sea Mist into Cobh – which led to the fall of one of Britain’s biggest drug smugglers, the lengthy legal battle to convict three Britons for their role in a botched trafficking operation off the Fastnet Rock.

Reveals how Ireland’s coastline has been exploited by international drug traffickers, examines the amazing backgrounds to some of the country’s largest drug seizures, looks at the increase in drug use in Ireland and its impact, and explores the role of ‘mules’ and their links to drug masterminds.

Includes exclusive interviews and an extensive picture section.

Ann Murphy brings all her expertise to bear in a book that tells an astounding tale.
