Rutledge Terrace, Dublin

Hoax forces residents to evacuate homes

The Defence Forces were called to the incident, which took place in Dublin city last night.

RESIDENTS WERE FORCED to evacuate their homes on a Dublin terrace last night due to what turned out to be a hoax.

The Defence Forces confirmed that they were called to the scene at Rutledge Terrace at the South Circular Road in Dublin at 12.30am.

A resident of the area tweeted that she waited outside her home along with other residents while the bomb disposal squad investigated the scene.

The Defence Forces discovered the call-out was a hoax but said today that they would not comment further on whether a controlled explosion was carried out.

Once the Defence Forces had finished its work, the residents were able to re-enter their homes.
