THE ARMY BOMB Disposal Team has removed a viable device discovered in the Knocknacarra area of Galway City. 

The team was called shortly after 10pm last night to investigate the improvised explosive device, following a request from gardaí.

On arrival, a cordon was established and maintained for the duration of the operation.

A viable device was identified, made safe and removed to a defence force location for further examination. The team departed the scene just after 10.35pm, according to a Defence Forces spokesperson. 

“Should members of the public encounter suspicious items, or hazardous substances, they are advised to maintain a safe distance and inform An Garda Síochána,” the spokesperson added.
