Pat Sweeney’s children were returned to their mother following outcry over their removal from their father’s home by An Garda Síochána at 3.30am on Saturday. It is understood the children were the subject of a court order to be returned to their mother, who lives in France.
Mr Sweeney had last month filmed officers removing parishioners from a local church. He is shown at top (video) in Longford Garda Station.
