Raids in Cavan and Monaghan as part of Garda operation tackling child porn

Searches have been carried out in Cavan and Monaghan as part of Operation Ketch 5, targeting the possession and distribution of child pornography.

Gardaí searched properties in 11 counties across the country, with two in Monaghan and one in Cavan. Digital material was been seized at all addresses and is being technically examined as part of the investigation.

Gardaí say they’re liaising with Tusla regarding any child protection issues that may arise during that investigation. 137 addresses were searched during 2018 as part of Operation Ketch.
