Two south Dublin schools have sent letters home to parents warning a serial rapist has been spotted in the area.
It's believed management was referring to a man who was convicted after a six day rampage in September of 1995.
He was jailed in 1996 for the rape of four women and sexual assault of two others in Dalkey, Killiney and Monkstown.
The man also stabbed a woman in Rathmines.
He was released in 2009 after serving 13 years of the 18 year sentence.
According to the Herald two southside schools - one primary and one secondary - wrote to parents urging them to be vigilant.
The man wasn't named but the paper believes it's the same offender whom they'd photographed walking around Mount Merrion a number of weeks ago.
The letter said Gardai had told them he hadn't re-offended since his release and wasn't a paedophile, but the school was continuing to liaise with the detectives.
It also claimed discussions with local reps would suggest he'd "be encouraged to move out of the area in the near future."
