It has been reported this morning that Larry Murphy has left Ireland to live in Spain.
The 45-year-old served 10 years of a 15-year sentence for the attempted murder and rape of a young businesswoman in 2000.
Today's report said Murphy left Ireland last Tuesday to relocate to the south of Spain.
It is understood gardaí have informed the Spanish police that Murphy is officially ranked as a "high-risk" sex offender
Murphy was required to give gardaí the exact address of where he is living as required by law.
La Guardia Civil is now responsible for monitoring him.
The early release of the sex offender from Arbour Hill prison last month sparked outrage across the country and prompted a major debate over automatic 25% remission for inmates for "good behaviour".
