THREE VIABLE BOMBS have been rendered safe by army experts in Tallaght, the Defence Forces have confirmed.

It follows an alert in the St Dominics area of the south Dublin suburb this afternoon.

An Army bomb squad responded to a call-out from gardaí, after one suspect device was found outside a house in the estate. A number of houses were then evacuated and nearby roads were closed off.

The team arrived on scene at 4.20 pm, and the devices were made safe without the need for a controlled explosion. The all clear was given after around 30 minutes.

The component parts have since been brought to a military location for further examination, and will be handed over to investigating gardaí.
