Earlier this morning:
A number of concerning posts have appeared on social media about St Oliver’s Secondary School in Drogheda, Co Louth.
Various parents are saying that they’ve received panicked texts from their children in the school with some claiming that Gardai are now present at the school’s entrance.
A number of other people are claiming that they heard Gardai speed up the Rathmullen Road on the way to the school.
