No increase in terrorist threat to Donegal – Minister

Donegal Senator Cecilia Keaveney is calling for the redeployment of the bomb disposal unit to finner camp due to recent security threats in both the North and South.

Senator Keaveney says recent security threats in the county such as a bomb scare in Donegal Town last month merits the redeployment of the EOD team from Athlone to the border.

Raising the issue in the Seanad last evening Senator Cecilia Keaveney told the house there's fear out there that someone may be seriously injured or even killed in a security threat in the coming months.

Responding Junior Minister Aine Brady said the Minister for Defence doesn't consider that there's been an increase in the threat to public safety in Donegal over the past few months.

Deputy Brady says the issue is under constant review.
