Thousands of Irish women have had sexual images leaked online without their consent in recent days.

It's after the images, some of underage girls, were shared on private online forums.

A lot of these images would have been obtained from apps such as Snapchat, Tinder and OnlyFans for a number of weeks.

It's understood thousands of women are involved, with an online protest set to take place next week.

Widespread

CEO of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, Noeline Blackwell, says the leak is shocking: "With the hacking of that online group, there is now a concern that the sharing or the transfer of those images is going to be much more widespread."

The reports have reached the top level of the Gardai, with the Assistant Commissioner for Organised and Serious Crime carrying out enquiries into the matter.

There are concerns for the women who have yet to find out that their images are part of the leak.

A petition calling for revenge porn laws set up a number of months ago has been widely circulated since the incident.

It now has close to 25 thousand signatures.
