Three quizzed in connection with alleged Cork rapes

Three men were arrested this morning by gardaí investigating allegations that a woman was raped a number of times in east Cork.

This morning’s arrests are part of an operation mounted after the alleged victim contacted gardaí in east Cork late last year.

She told gardaí she was raped and sexually assaulted a number of times in recent months in east Cork.

The woman is a foreign national living in Cork and is in her 20s.

An investigation has been on-going in recent weeks and gardaí this morning arrested three men in east Cork and Waterford.

Detectives from north Cork combined with gardaí in Waterford for the operation. The arrested men — all in their 20s — were taken to Cobh and Midleton garda stations.

They were being questioned under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act.

They can be held for up to 24 hours.

A garda spokesman said enquiries were continuing today.
