Written 9 months ago by Newsroom


Gardaí say a suspect device discovered in Rathangan, Co. Kildare this morning was simply a machine part.

The pipe-shaped object was discovered in the vicinity of the Post Office on Bridge Street and the town was blocked off as an army unit dealt with it.

It has been confirmed that the object was a part from a tractor and it has been removed from the scene.

The town has reopened to traffic after being cordoned off earlier.
