AN ARMY BOMB disposal unit was called to deal with what turned out to be a hoax device found on a Dublin street last night.

Residents of Wellmount Avenue in Finglas, north Dublin were evacuated from their homes and the area cordoned off after the discovery of a suspicious device at around 9.45pm last night.

The Defence Forces’ Army Bomb Disposal Team was called to the scene and was able to declare it safe at 12.45am.

Further examination of the device revealed that it was a hoax.
