Pipe Bomb an Alarming Development- O'Brien
Sinn Féin spokesperson on Justice, Jonathan O’Brien TD, has described yesterday’s discovery of a pipe-bomb at Popham’s Road in Farranree as an alarming development.
Deputy O’Brien, who lives in the area, said:
“Yesterday’s discovery is gravely worrying. It is particularly shocking for local residents given that this is a normally quiet area.”
“Serious disruption was caused, with 80 local people evacuated from their homes while the device was being made safe.”
“Whoever was behind this attack showed a callous disregard for human life. If the device had exploded, innocent passers-by could have been injured or even killed.”
“It is vital that those responsible be brought to justice as soon as possible. We cannot afford to tolerate criminality of this nature in our city.”
