In Photos: Boy Finds Pipe Bomb In Antrim School Playground

by | 6th, September 2010

BRENDAN Shannon is the 8-year-old boy who found a pipe bomb lying in the playground at his school, St Comgall’s Primary in Antrim.

Says Brendan’s mother Siobhan Shannon, a nurse:

“The people who left that device probably have kids of their own. Have they no conscience?”

Hilary Cush, the headteacher at St Comgall’s, adds:

“It’s absolutely crazy. It’s unbelievable that innocent children should be caught up in something like this.”

The assumption is that the bomb was left their deliberately buy paramiliataries. If it was, then it is a revolting act. But there is no proof that it was.

Still, it is unsettling that children are being exposed to such things – especially when their peers have to wait until November 5 to chuck the stuffed Catholic on the fire and watch him burn in lots of pretty colours…
