Lisa Smith's solicitor says case against her is 'inherently weak'

"She is now being detained at a south Dublin Garda station under the provisions of Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939 as amended".

Photographs showed a woman descending the steps, her face hidden by a pink blanket.

"Lisa has categorically denied being involved in any terrorist offence or terrorist group and at this stage there's absolutely no evidence that she's been involved in any organisation or terrorist group. There are sympathies for her daughter - but there is the understanding that Lisa Smith needs to be questioned thoroughly".

Smith joined the Irish Defence Forces as a young infantry recruit and transferred five years later to the air corps, where she worked for another five years as a flight attendant on the official government jet, assisting government ministers including Bertie Ahern, then the prime minister.

"When she got off the plane, they let her out the back door".

Lisa Smith is suspected to be interviewed by police for terrorist offences.

The Department of Foreign Affairs said it first became aware of the case in March when Unicef was warning of high mortality rates at the Syrian camp where the mother and child were being held in "dire conditions" after a Turkish incursion.

Tánaiste Simon Coveney says the Government's primary concern was ensuring the safety of a two year old girl caught up in a warzone, adding the DPP will decide what happens next.

She converted to Islam in 2011 while still serving in the Irish Defence Forces.

She was as soon as no longer in custody for the four-and-a-half-hour flight nonetheless Irish police were ready at Dublin airport for the plane's arrival. Turkish Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu in a statement had said that the Islamic State terrorists were kept in Turkey as if it was a 'hotel.' The Turkish Minister further said that the deportations would take place, irrespective of the revocation of citizenships of the Islamic State fighters. Ms Smith is originally from Dundalk, Co Louth. I don't even think I'm radicalised. She has said the father of her child was a suspected IS member who died past year. No", she said. "Have I any intentions to do anything? No.

The Dundalk woman is being questioned by Gardai after she arrived back in Ireland.
