THE ARMY BOMB DISPOSAL Unit has made three viable improvised explosive devices (IEDs) safe near Celbridge, Co Kildare.

Gardaí alerted the team to the discovery of the devices at a wooded area near the town. The IEDs were found during a garda search operation and the Defence Forces squad arrived on the scene just after midday.

A spokesperson for the Defence Forces said that the three devices were made safe at the scene without requiring a controlled explosion, and the scene was declared safe at 2pm.

The IEDs have since been removed to a secure military facility for forensic and technical examination, after which they will be given to the gardaí as part of their investigation into the incident.

The bomb disposal team has responded to 29 call-outs so far this year.
