Threats made against a Border business have been intercepted by Gardai. 

It has been reported that a “major security operation” is underway along the Cavan and Fermanagh Border after threats were intercepted by An Garda Síochána against Mannok, the new name for Quinn Industrial Holdings after they rebranded a few weeks ago. 

Speaking to The Impartial Reporter this week, a spokesperson for Mannok said: “Mannok continues to liaise closely with authorities north and south regarding security arrangements, but understandably, it would not be appropriate to comment on the detail of same.”

The Sunday Independent has reported that The Regional Armed Response Unit has increased its protection to the company and its directors since last week. 
There are reportedly 24 hours patrols happening along the Fermanagh Border due to these increased threats.

Company directors for Mannok have been receiving protection from police forces on both sides of the Border after the abduction and attack of operations director, Kevin Lunney near Kinawley last September.

Non-executive director, John McCartin told the Sunday Independent that he was told by Guards to “not engage in regular activities and to vary our movements”.
