THE case involving a 32-year-old man charged in connection with a pipe bomb explosion in Irvinestown earlier this year has been adjourned.

Sean McVeigh with an address in Glencara Park, Letterkenny County Donegal appeared before Strabane magistrates court on Thursday via video link from Maghaberry prison.
McVeigh who has been in custody since April is charged with possessing a pipe bomb with intent to endanger life.
The charges are connected to a bomb explosion in a housing estate at Irvinestown, County Fermanagh, on January 30. 
McVeigh had also been previously charged with the attempted murder of Paul Maye on the same date, but that charge has now been dropped.
The prosecution in the case told the court that they are still waiting on a forensic report regarding the pipe bomb and case has now been adjourned until a later date.
No bail application was made on behalf of McVeigh who was remanded in custody.
