Authorities at Rosslare Europort have discovered 14 people hidden in the back of a truck that arrived from France this afternoon.
The 12 males and two females were discovered by Garda Immigration Officers after the Irish Ferries Oscar Wilde ferry docked around 2pm today.
All 14 people, including one juvenile, were found inside a refrigerated trailer unit.
All are said to be in good health although one man was taken to Wexford General Hospital as a precaution.
The ship had sailed from Cherbourg in France last night.
It is expected the people found will all be referred to the refugee application process.
