Police in the city of Cork are warning of a “no place” for terrorism.
In a statement issued by the force, it said that while there are “some isolated acts of terrorism which may take place in Cork”, there was “no reason to believe that any Cork residents would be at risk of being targeted in any way”.
It said there had been “no indication” of an imminent attack and “no evidence” that anyone had been in contact with a known terrorist.
The statement said police have “detailed all relevant information in relation to the threat”.
A spokesman for the force said the force was also “monitoring the situation closely” following the attack on a police station.
“The Cork Police Service will continue to investigate and carry out all necessary actions in accordance with its legal obligations,” he said.
