The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall meet veterans during a VE Day Parade

ARMY bomb experts have revealed that two ‘viable’ explosive devices were found during a series of raids in Ireland and six men have been arrested for suspected terror offences.
The find came just a week before the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are due to visit the country, but may not be related as Garda sources have said there is no direct link or evidence of a credible plot so far.
Around 20 searches yesterday, May 13, were carried out as a part of a police investigation into dissident republican activity in Dublin, Louth and Wexford counties.
Four men, one in his 60s and three in their 20s, are being held at police stations in Dublin for questioning under the Offences Against the State Act which allows suspects to be held for 72 hours.
Another two men are being held under the same act at Manorhamilton Garda station.
