Garda Commissioner Drew Harris has said a deradicalisation programme is not needed by the Gardaí for suspected terrorists.

This has been at the forefront of Government thinking, in addition to handling another Irish citizen who has made a number of interesting statements about her activities in media interviews.

Eight years ago, in an interview with the Irish Independent newspaper, she described herself as a former party girl who drank too much on occasion, smoked cannabis and took ecstasy. It is understood she travelled to Syria in 2015, married a British fighter and had a baby daughter.

She was deported from Turkey on Sunday morning.

Ms Smith will be questioned again today and can be held in Garda custody for up to three days.

The Irish Times say her likely defence to charges will surround the definition of the word "membership".

The 38-year-old who was deported from Turkey yesterday morning is the subject of a criminal investigation into suspected commission of terrorist offences overseas.

They were covered in a pink blanket and transferred to a waiting vehicle.

Her young child is in the care of Ms Smith's family.

Ms Smith was immediately arrested by gardai on suspicion of terrorist offences and is being detained at a South Dublin garda station for questioning.
