A DEVICE from World War II, which had been trawled up by a fisherman yesterday was made safe in Kinsale last night.
Speaking to The Southern Star, Supt Brendan Fogarty of Bandon Garda Station said the device was an actual shell and was trawled up by a fisherman.
'Once we were notified of the find we sealed off the area and the EOD (Explosive Ordance Disposal) team were dispatched to the main slipway in Kinsale where the device was placed,' said Supt Fogarty.
'They inspected it and removed it and carried out a controlled explosive in a different location. The whole operation was very quick and the place was re-opened within three hours.'
