Dundalk woman Lisa Smith is going to be allowed return to Ireland after joining ISIS.

The government claims that we have a duty of care to bring the former Defence Forces soldier home.

The 37-year-old told CNN: “I want to go home.

“I know they’d strip me of my passport and stuff and I wouldn’t travel and I’d be watched kind of, but prisons? I don’t know. I’m already in prison.”

She added: “I think that people should just realise that all the people here are not terrorists.”

A so-called “security assessment” will be carried to see if Smith is “not a threat to life and limb here in Ireland”, Leo Varadkar told the Dáil.

Varadkar discussed Smith’s case in a Cabinet meetingyesterday and they are allowing her back to Ireland. According to RTE, Varadkar said:
“I am very conscious of the fact that while nobody can condone the choice that she has made and the actions that she took in aligning herself with ISIS, a terrorist regime that is hell-bent on the destruction of the west and Christendom, she does have a two-year-old child that is an Irish citizen and that child is an innocent child.

“And as is the case with all Irish citizens, they will be permitted to re-enter the State should they try to do so.

He said: “But of course a security assessment will have to be carried out to make sure that Lisa Marie Smith is not a threat to any of us.

“We are working out how best that can be done to make sure that she does not become a threat to life and limb here in Ireland. But that does not apply obviously to a two-year-old child.”
