TD Clare Daly has been nabbed by gardai for non-payment of a fine.

Reports indicate that she was picked up just hours after Wexfrord TD Mick Wallace was released from Limerick Prison.

Daily was taken to the same jail just before 9:15 pm.

The duo’s arrest comes from their attempt to ‘inspect’ US military aircraft at Shannon Airport.

The two climbed over a fence and made their way towards the airplane without security clearance.

Wallace was arrested by appointment today in Clontarf at 11:30am before being driven to the prison by two gardaí.

He defiantly shouted “It probably won’t be as bad for me as it is for the people in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan,” as he arrived at the prison.

Daily is expected to be released from prison in the early hours of tomorrow morning, similar to Mr Wallace.

Speaking outside the jail after his release, Mr Wallace said he intended to get a train back to Dublin.

He also said he is determined to continue his campaign against the use of Shannon Airport by the US military.
