A SUSPICIOUS DEVICE has been found on Amiens Street in Dublin city centre this morning.

Connolly Station was evacuated and closed because of the security alert, while an emergency response team was deployed to examine the device.

Services were temporarily suspended, but Irish Rail has tweeted that the station has reopened and full services will now resume, albeit with delays. The company thanked the gardaí and army for “doing a crucial job dealing with situations like this”.

On Sunday evening, part of this area of Dublin was sealed off after a suspicious device was discovered between Amiens Street and Talbot Street.
