Gardai call in bomb squad over Firework

On edge Limerick Gardai got all worked up yesterday after they found a suspicious device close to where the body of Thomas Moran was found.

The leader reports that Gardai were performing searches around the area in relation to the murder when they discovered what they said was a “grenade type device”

The Army bomb disposal crew were called in who in turn informed the Gardai that it was just a firework.

An Army spokesman said,

“The Bomb Disposal unit determined it to be a non fatal pyrotechnic device which posed no immediate threat. The item was then removed from the scene and brought to Collins Barracks where it will undergo further examination.”
