Two Improvised Explosive Devices which Gardaí believe were to be used by dissident republican terrorists, have been recovered and made safe by the defence forces on agricultural lands in Co Limerick.

The two devices were discovered, buried on lands at Fedamore this morning, after a series of planned Garda searches.

The devices were rendered safe by members of an army bomb disposal unit.

The Fedamore to Meanus road which was closed for several hours while the security operation was ongoing, has now reopened.
