The other two men who were being held were released without charge earlier today and a file is also being prepared on them for the DPP.

Meanwhile the woman in her 30s who was arrested late last night in Claregalway remains in Garda custody and is being held at Mill Street under section 4 of The Criminal Justice Act.
