OLD COMMERCIAL EXPLOSIVES and detonators were made safe by an Army Bomb Disposal Team outside Bandon in County Cork this afternoon.
The Defence Forces deployed the team to a rural house in Gaggan, just off the N71, after a request by the Gardaí.
The team said it removed a small quantity of old commerical explosives and a number of detonators from an outhouse. They were taken to a different location and made safe by a controlled explosion.
The operation began at 1.15pm and the area was declared safe by 3pm.
