THE ARMY BOMB Disposal Team have made safe four viable improvised explosive devices found near the Malahide Road in Dublin.

The IEDs were found as part of a Garda Síochána Operation in the area and a team from the Defence Forces was deployed at around 2.20 pm.

The IEDs, which were found on some waste ground off the Malahide Road, were examined and made safe in situ without the need for a controlled explosion.

They were subsequently removed to a secure military location for further examination and the scene was declared safe at 3.10 pm.

The remains of the devices will be handed over to the gardaí to assist in their investigations.
