A School In Dublin Has Been Evacuated This Morning Following A Bomb Scare

Students were ordered to leave the building immediately following the warning


A school in Donaghmede this morning was evacuated, following a phoned-in warning that there was a bomb in the building.

Independent.ie reported this morning that students were evacuated from Scoil Cholmcille secondary school, which shares grounds with the Holy Trinity Primary School, and gardaí were contacted.

It is unclear whether pupils from the primary school were also evacuated.

They later searched the premises, and did not find any device; the Explosive Ordnance Defence unit was not contacted, and gardaí will now investigate the identity of the person who made the call.

There was a similar incident in Limerick this morning, where pupils were evacuated from Milford National School, according to a report in TheJournal.ie – while there are also reports of a third incident elsewhere in the country.

No injuries or incidents have been reported.

More to follow.
