A WORLD WAR 2 mine has been brought ashore in Kinsale this evening, its Harbour Master has said.

The mine is currently located on the main slipway, opposite the clubhouse, the Kinsale Yacht Club said on Twitter.

“Please avoid the area both from the shore and water side until made safe.”

It’s thought that the mine was discovered after getting caught in a fisherman’s net.
