House evacuated by bomb squad in Ardee
The Army Bomb Disposal team says an object found in Ardee last night was not a hoax or viable device.
The item was found in a laneway off Tierney Street shortly before 9 o’clock last night.
A number of homes nearby were evacuated and residents were allowed return home after bomb disposal experts examined the object at around 11.10pm.
The bomb squad also attended a security alert in the Rathmullen Park of Drogheda in the early hours of yesterday morning, which was subsequently declared a hoax.
