A court has ordered a block on eight websites offering illegal movie downloads.
The ruling by the Commercial Court follows an action taken by the Motion Picture Association.
The pirate sites targeted by the order include Putlocker and Gomovies.
The Motion Picture Association says the eight websites were visited over 6 million times by Irish-based users in one month alone last year.
Most of the sites involved in today's ruling have already been blocked in other European countries like the UK, Norway, and Denmark.
