IOL: Holy Cross scare was hoax

01/09/2003 - 11:58:22

A hoax bomb found outside the Catholic Holy Cross primary school in north Belfast caused a security alert for a number of hours this morning.

The device was found at the gates of the building in the Ardoyne area as pupils were preparing for the beginning of the new school term this morning.

The children and parents were given shelter in the assembly hall of a neighbouring school while bomb disposal experts examined the suspect package.

Sinn Féin councillor Margaret McLenaghan said the alert had caused fear and anger among parents and children, whose school was at the centre of a violent loyalist blockade two years ago.
