THREE PEOPLE WHO were arrested yesterday in connection with the discovery of two improvised explosive devices (IEDs) last year have been released from custody this evening.

Yesterday a man and woman, both in their 30s were arrested in Kells, Co Meath and a second man in his 20s was arrested in Mallow in connection with two incidents in July and March 2012 involving suspect devices.

The device in July was found at a house in Kilnap Place, Farranree and the explosive device found in March was placed under a car. An officer with the army bomb disposal unit was injured during the examination of this device.

All three were detained under the provisions of Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act 1939 at The Bridewell in Cork, Mayfield and Gurranabraher Garda Stations but were released today. Gardaí said a file will now be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions.
