Clarification has been sought of Gardai and a Kildare school, following allegation of a "threat" made on social media.
A parent of a 1st year student at the school has contacted Kfm News, and contends the threat was made 3 weeks ago, referencing today's date.
Since then, the parent alleges, there has been a notable Garda presence at the school.
The parent further adds that "The Gardaí and the school have been working together in relation to the threat and in there (sic) opinion there is no immediate risk or endangerment to the students. "
The parent also says "I have myself contacted the principal today (Thursdays) and indeed know of several other concerned parents, all of whom have been assured there is no risk and that the Gardaí presence in the school is only to have them there."
