The early 20th century, solid shot, artillery projectile was taken from the beach near Cappa Pier in the last hour.
It is understood a local man had acquired the World War One artefact, believing it to be safe, but contacted Gardaí when he grew concerned about the presence of a fuse.
A Defence Forces spokesperson has confirmed that the device was removed from the scene and there was no explosive content found in the bomb.
