pipe bomb

  • Gardai are renewing their appeal for information following the discovery of a pipe bomb in Tuam last month.

    Members of the Army bomb disposal team from Athlone attended the scene on the morning of May 12, and made the area safe.

    However, it was established that this was a viable explosive device. 

    Gardai are appealing to anyone who was in the vicinity of Weir Road in Tuam from approximately 10pm on Tuesday night May 11 and 8.30am on Thursday May 12 and who may have information to contact them at Tuam Garda Station on (093) 70840 or call the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111 - particularly anyone with video or dash cam footage.
