A man in his fifties was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice as part of a garda probe into alleged corruption within the force.

The man was detained at a garda station in Co Tipperary on Thursday.

The man was subsequently released without charge and the investigations are ongoing.

Gardai said the arrest is in relation to investigations by the Garda National Bureau of Criminal Investigation (GNBCI) into alleged wrongdoing or corruption involving garda personnel in the southern region.

In May, two garda members were questioned as part of the probe.

The superintendent and a rank-and-file garda were released without charge.
