Limerick device found to be elaborate hoax


An Army bomb disposal team has reported that the device left outside a house in Limerick city this morning is an elaborate hoax.

A Garda spokeswoman would not confirm that the house belonged to a prison officer.

She said the house had been sealed off after an "alleged device" was found at the front door of the house on Shelbourne Road in the city this morning.

Last Monday, a prison officer in the city had his car burned out.
