Officers have been unable to identify any suspects in the alleged attacks on boutique owner Regina Sweeney (36). They had been working on the theory that a gang had attacked her because of her garda connections.

Ms Sweeney said she was first attacked in her home near Castlebar, Co Mayo, in Decem-ber by two men. Following that incident, she appeared on 'The Late Late Show' during a discussion about a rural crime wave.

She claimed a second attack occurred last month when she was taunted that she "wasn't as cocky now as on the telly".

Ms Sweeney said a third attack happened last week.
