A SECTION OF a busy North Dublin road was sealed off by Gardaí this morning after a “blood-like substance” was discovered by a cafe manager.

The manager of The Station Cafe on the Lower Drumcondra Road discovered what appeared to be a large puddle of blood outside the front door of the premises when he arrived at around 7.40am this morning.

Gardaí received a call from the manager reporting the incident shortly after the discovery was made.

“I got here around 7.40am this morning and I saw blood all on the outside of the door and floor,” the manager told 

“I called the police straight away and they arrived very quickly. They closed off the area and they took some photos,” he said.

The area was sealed off for a short time for a technical examination, according to gardaí.

“I think it happened early this morning because the blood stain was very, very bad and it was not dry. It definitely happened this morning, I think,” the manager said.

“I don’t have CCTV footage but my neighbours have.”
