Shortly before 3 a.m. on Tuesday last the Vocational School at Kiltyclogher, Co. Leitrim, a few hundred yards from the Border, was extensively damaged by a bomb. The bomb, estimated to have contained 120 lbs. of gelignite, was placed inside the two - storey building, but there was no casualties as there was no one near the building at the time. The school had been reconstructed and modernised in 1965 at a cost of 65,000 pounds. The damage is estimated at 100,000 pounds. Local Gardai cordoned off the area and carried out a search. Later Army explosive experts searched through the rubble for clues. The school closed for the summer holidays last week. Our picture shows the extent of the exterior destruction. The interiors of all the rooms were extensively damaged, June 1973, issue 7626, unused
