A person has been arrested as part of an operation targeting prostitution in the Mid-West region, following Garda searches in Ennis and Limerick in recent weeks.
Ennis gardaí involved in the operation carried out a series of searches of premises in the town and on the back of this, one person was arrested last weekend.
A file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecution in relation to the matter.
Clare gardaí are working in conjunction with other garda divisions across the Mid-West as part of the operation and their investigations are ongoing.
