Two people have been arrested as part of an investigation into organised prostitution.
The man and woman are also being questioned in relation to the establishment of brothels and alleged suspected money-laundering offences.
It's part of ongoing investigations by the Garda National Protective Services Bureau (GNPSB).
Both are in their 40s and 20s respectively, and are being held at a Garda Station in Dublin.
Detective Chief Superintendent Declan Daly, GNPSB, said: "These arrests are significant in the ongoing investigations being carried out by the Garda National Protective Services Bureau into suspected organised prostitution and the establishment of brothels throughout the jurisdiction.
"The investigations have culminated in the significant arrests of two persons who are currently detained pursuant to organised crime related legislation.
"The investigations concerned reflect An Garda Síochána’s ‘Victim Centred’ approach to tackling criminality of the nature suspected and its pursuit to keep people safe.”
