It is understood that a number of people living abroad have made contact with gardaí with a view to making official complaints alleging abuse in Cork in past decades, during scouting activities.
One man was arrested and questioned in recent weeks on foot of a complaint received from a former scout member.
He was released without charge and a file has been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
In another case, a file has been sent to Tusla in relation to allegations of abuse against another Corkman, by a different person.
On Tuesday, Scouting Ireland revealed that the organisation now knows of 212 alleged perpetrators and of 317 alleged victims, over the last 70 years.
The majority of allegations relate to the period between the 1960s and the 1990s.
Cork East TD Sean Sherlock, Labour’s spokesman on children and youth affairs, has called for a coordinated response by Minister Katherine Zappone to the revelations of abuse within Scouting Ireland.
