Yesterday Cabinet approved legislation to criminalise the sharing of intimate images without a persons consent.
Justice Minister Helen McEntee is hopeful the laws will be enacted by the end of the year.
Gardai are encouraging anyone who's been a victim of image-based sexual abuse to come forward and report their experience.
