Adjoining houses were evacuated while the device was removed to a safe location, where the controlled explosion was carried out.
A cordon was also put in place around the scene of the discovery for public safety.
The area was declared safe at 3:50pm and the remains of the device are to be handed over to Gardaí to assist in their investigations.
