Former Defence Forces member Lisa Smith is to be charged with a terrorist offence and will appear in court in Dublin this morning.

She was arrested on Sunday after she arrived in Ireland having been deported from Turkey along with her two-year-old daughter.

She was questioned for three days at Kevin Street Garda Station.

Following consultations, the Director of Public Prosecutions directed gardaí to charge her and bring her to the Courts of Criminal Justice.
