Houses have been evacuated and the Army bomb disposal squad has been called to deal with the discovery of an unexplained device in county Galway.
Gardai sealed off the area at 8.30am following the discovery of an unexplained device at the Cuirt na Cora estate on the Weir Road in Tuam.
Local Fianna Fail Councillor Donagh Killilea says residents won't be that shocked with this development given the ongoing anti-social behaviour that residents in the area have had to put up with for the last four years.
Cllr. Killilea says it's very disturbing to think that 16 families had to be evacuated from their houses this morning and has condemned the actions by those responsible.
