GARDAI have this Saturday evening interviewed a man in connection with alleged grooming of children, the Limerick Leader has learned. 

It is understood the probe surrounds an adult male who allegedly communicated online with a number of minors, including a 10-year-old, in recent weeks. 

The investigation is being handled by the Garda Protective Services Unit.

It has been confirmed that the male was interviewed this Saturday evening, and a file is to be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecutions.  

Gardai confirmed to the Leader this Saturday morning that they are “investigating the allegation regarding the alleged grooming”.

It is understood that gardai at Henry Street received separate reports on various dates in January, while another complaint was made at Mayorstone station in recent days.
