Army dispose of suspicious cylinder

Jan 7, 2012   //   by Caitriona   //   Callouts  //  1 Comment

Doolin Coast Guard was tasked to assist Ennistymon Gardaí and Ennistymon Fire and Rescue Service at the Northern end of Lahinch Beach. A member of the public had reported having seen what he believed to be a suspicious device on the beach to Gardaí . Doolin Coast Guard Unit members went to the area , the Ennistymon Fire and Rescue Service were on scene and had cordoned off the beach at both ends. The Army Bomb Disposal Unit travelled from Cork and examined the cylinder. The Doolin Coast Guard quad bike was used to transport some army equipment and lighting to the site. A short time later, they performed a controlled explosion and made the cylinder safe. It was then taken back to the Army Base in Cork to be disposed of.
