Tesco opens following ‘an incident’

The Tesco store in Carrick on Shannon re opened Wednesday afternoon after what was described as “a precautionary measure following an incident”.

Unconfirmed local reports state that a bomb threat was allegedly phoned into the store shortly after 2pm.

The store was evacuated while Gardai carried out a search of the premises.

Nothing was found during the search and the store subsequently reopened.

A spokesperson for Tesco Ireland said ““The safety of our colleagues and customers is our utmost priority and we co-operated fully with the Garda investigation.”
