Gildernew targeted by hoax bomb

Michelle Gildernew

SINN FEIN MP Michelle Gildernew was the target of a hoax bomb alert this morning (Monday).

A caller to the Sinn Fein office in Dungannon this morning claimed that there was a bomb at her home and that they hoped when it went off Michelle was in the house.


The PSNI were contacted and after a search of the MP’s home it was declared a hoax. The mother of three said it was worrying that people would even consider targeting her family.

The Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA said:

“Targeting my home, in which I have three small children, is a despicable thing to do. Thankfully nothing was found.

“Threats like this will only make me more determined to continue to represent the people of Fermanagh and South Tyrone and push ahead with my work within Sinn Féin.

“I and the rest of my colleagues in Sinn Féin will not be intimidated from our work by threats of this sort.
