Investigations have been launched following a hoax bomb scare after St. Nathy’s College in Ballaghaderreen was evacuated on Monday morning.
Gardaí received a call claiming that there was an incendiary device on the school premises, however nothing was recovered following a thorough search of the school.
Parents had received text messages early on Monday morning advising them that the school would be closed due to unforeseen circumstances. The emergency services attended the scene and confirmed that it was a hoax after giving the area the all-clear.
Gardaí have begun investigations into the incident.
