The Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit has removed a device from the grounds of a school in Co Donegal.
It follows a major scare after exposed wires were noticed on the site at Milford National School yesterday.
The wires were noticed during construction work on the site adjacent to the primary school.
Children were evacuated from the school as Gardai alerted the army to the find.
The Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit arrived at the scene today as children remained off school for another day.
Pupils from two other nearby secondary schools as well as residents in nearby houses were not evacuated.
Gardai have now confirmed that a number of materials have since been removed from the site.
However, a spokesperson did not confirmed if the materials found represented a threat.
At least three army vehicles spent time at the scene of the find today, according to local eyewitnesses.
A spokesperson said “Gardaí received a report of exposed wires at a site on Convent Road, Milford, Co. Donegal at approximately 1:50pm yesterday afternoon, Monday 27th November 2023.
“A cordon was established and the services of the Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit were requested.
“The materials were removed by the Army EOD Unit and the site was made safe.
“The cordon has now been lifted.”
