‘Explosions’ in Mullingar, Gardaí called

Residents at Greenpark Meadows rushed from their homes onto the street on Monday afternoon of this week, 15 April, after hearing extremely loud explosions in their estate, and they afterwards contacted Topic about the matter, and said they had notified the Gardai.

It was not clear what had been detonated close to the houses, but some people compared what they heard to the explosion in a pipe bomb incident last year in the area. The fact that the incident this week was in mid-afternoon caused concerns.
