Threatening Letters sent to Harney and Martin

Threatening letters containing shotgun cartridges have been sent to two cabinet ministers and a number of fertility clinics around the country.

Mary Harney (left), Minister for Health and Children (who will be celebrating her 55th birthday tomorrow), and Micheál Martin (below right), the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, who was Harney's predecessor in charge of Health, received letters claiming to be from a previously unknown group, calling themselves the Irish Citizens Defence Force.

It emerged that a letter addressed to Harney was delivered to the minister's office at the Department of Health at Hawkins House in Dublin on February 29th.

Letters containing a live shotgun cartridge was also received by a number of fertility clinics, including the Clane Clinic in Kildare, on the same day. RTÉ News was told that it contained threats to staff and was "deeply upsetting". The SIMS Fertility Clinic in Dundrum reported that it also received a similar letter.

The Garda Commissioner appointed a detective inspector to examine the incidents.
