The Garda said one man was in found in the premises at the time and a large number of sexual aids and costumes were seized. €770 in cash was also found as were eight mobile phones and a laptop computer.

The judge imposed three month jail sentences on each of them which he suspended on condition they leave the country. He ordered that €350 of the money seized should be returned to them to allow them to pay for flights.
