According to the reports of global media, Irish Police was waiting for Lisa Smith to land at the Dublin airport, from there she was captured by the authorities who found the terror accused wrapped in a pink blanket.

'She is now being detained at a South Dublin Garda pickle below the provisions of Share 30 of the Offences against the Yelp Act, 1939 as amended.

Photos of her arrival confirmed her lined in a red blanket as she was as soon as taken from the plane in heavy rain.

Ms Smith has totally denied being involved in violence. The child is being cared for by her family in Ireland while her mother is questioned at a Dublin police station.


Lisa Smith is expected to be questioned by Gardaí for two more days surrounding her activities with the so-called Islamic State.

RTÉ said she was accompanied by three consular officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs, members of the Army Ranger Wing, and a Turkish security officer on the flight.

"When she got off the plane, they let her out the back door". We can all criticise her for taking off to join ISIS. "UNICEF warned governments that conditions for children there were dire, with an extremely worrying child mortality rate".

The Irish Times say her likely defence to charges will surround the definition of the word "membership". She resigned that year, shortly after giving a newspaper interview about her decision to convert, saying she had become disillusioned with a lifestyle of drink, drugs and partying.


He said that Ms Smith has a "very strong case to make". Since then, the Government has been co-ordinating how the State should respond to her unique case.

Paul O'Neill (32), from Darndale, Dublin, said: "I was a bit shocked she was on it to be fair because you think someone would have said something". I looked at her and she looked at me.

Another Dublin passenger, who asked not to be named, said he recognised her straight away.

In it gardaí say that "an Irish Citizen (38 year old female) arrested on suspicion of terrorist offences following her deportation from Turkey, remains detained at a South Dublin Garda station under the provisions of Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, as amended".
