The man, who is being held under Section 50 of the Criminal Justice Act, appeared in court in Cork this morning.
Officers are investigating an alleged plot to kill a garda, a revenue official and an accountant. It is understood these targets had been probing the man's business activities in recent months.
It is thought a second man who was approached to carry out the assassination attempts told gardaí about the plot.
Officers then set up an undercover operation that led to the man's arrest.
