A man was questioned by Gardaí in county Limerick in connection to the alleged online harrassment of a county councillor.
Independent Councillor in Limerick Elisa O'Donovan tweeted to say she is grateful for the Gardaí's work.
The Limerick politician says she received "unsolicited sexual images" last month.
Today I was notified by @gardainfo that an individual has been arrested in relation to this cyberflashing incident. I am very grateful for all their hard work 🙏 I hope this action sends a strong message to others that cyber flashing is sexual harassment and is wrong https://t.co/BouyzOvQiU
