An Army bomb disposal team made safe two pipebombs in Co Sligo late last night.
It was the 118th callout for the Army's teams this year, which have made safe 59 improvised explosive devices in 2012.
The disposal team was deployed to a forest entrance on Holy Well Road near Tonaphuble following a request from the gardaí at about 9.30pm.
One of the devices was made safe at the scene by controlled explosion and the other device was made safe for transportation and brought back to a secure military location for forensic examination.
The scene was declared safe at 11.45pm.
The remains of the devices are to be handed over to gardaí today to assist in their investigations.
Anyone with information or who may have witnessed anything suspicious are asked to contact Sligo Garda Station or any Garda Station.
