Alleged former Isil member Lisa Smith is back in her daily routine just two days after being released on bail from a Limerick prison.

The former Defence Forces member was seen carrying a large white grocery bag yesterday before stepping into the passenger seat of a red Ford car.

She was dressed in clothing that left only part of her face uncovered. Smith had signed on at a Garda station as part of her bail conditions.

On Tuesday, the mother of one was escorted from the jail in a white prison van and was brought to an undisclosed location, where it is understood she was met by a family member.

The escort, which is not usually provided to accused people granted bail, was provided by the Irish Prison Service for "security reasons", a source said.

Ms Smith had been granted bail by the High Court but the District Court had rejected an attempt by a third party to lodge an independent surety because he had previous criminal convictions and was not related to Ms Smith. A €5,000 surety was later accepted by the courts.
