Saturday, March 24, under the headline "Boy, 9, takes bag of cocaine to
school", we incorrectly reported that the Principal of the school
concerned, Mr Ambrose McGinnity, had confirmed "the cocaine find".
In fact Mr McGinnity confirmed only that a substance had been found and he did not identify what that substance was.
However, a Garda source did confirm that the substance found was cocaine. We are happy to correct the position.
