Decommissioning delayed?

RTE appear to carry confirmation, from Gardaí, of this morning’s Irish Examiner report that thousands of rounds of ammunition – speculated to be for assault weapons – were dumped in North Kerry on Monday night. According to the IE’s John Breslin [sound file], which seemed to be the only paper to cover the story, despite the find being made on Tuesday the Garda Press Office “said it had no information about the discovery of the ammunition.”

The Irish Examiner report also notes –

..Mr de Chastelain has returned to Canada and the other monitors are on holiday for most of the month. It could be next month before the [decommissioning] process begins.

You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here.
