Former member of the Defence Forces Lisa Smith has been remanded in custody for another four weeks in order for a book of evidence to be prepared in the case against her.

The 37-year-old Dundalk woman has already been charged with membership of the terrorist group styling itself as Islamic State.

Dressed in a black hijab, she appeared during a two-minute hearing at Dublin District Court this morning after being escorted to the Criminal Courts of Justice from Limerick Prison.

It is alleged that Ms Smith was a member of ISIS between 28 October 2015 and 1 December 2019.

If convicted, she faces a maximum prison sentence of ten years.

Ms Smith was remanded in custody last Wednesday, after being denied bail during a hearing before Judge Colin Daly at Dublin District Court.

She was arrested earlier this month after being deported from Turkey along with her two-year-old daughter, who is currently in the care of relatives.

Ms Smith is due to appear in court again on 8 January.
