This morning the Foreign Affairs Minister Charlie Flanagan has said a number of suspected jihadists are being monitored within Ireland.
He said Ireland did “not have a special exemption” from the sort of attacks seen in Paris.
Mr Flanagan said: “We are vigilant. We are engaging with our European partners in intelligence gathering.
“Our Garda Siochána are very active. There are a small number of people in Ireland whose behaviour and activites are being monitored and will continue to be monitored.”
