SF Councillor expresses alarm at Killough pipe bomb find
Downpatrick Sinn Féin Councillor Éamann Mac Con Midhe has expressed alarm after a pipe bomb was discovered at the home of a family living in Killough.
Cllr Mac Con Midhe said: "The reports I have received is that this was a viable device that could have maimed or killed someone if they had picked it up.
"It beggars belief that someone would leave a pipe bomb in a residential area and it is fortunate that it was found and made safe.
"Those responsible need to consider the possible deadly consequences of their actions." ENDS
