A VIABLE EXPLOSIVE device was found in Tallaght, Dublin this evening. The Defence Forces had to be called to make the IED (improvised explosive device) safe after it was found at a home in the Rossfield area.

Houses nearby were evacuated and the area sealed off while members of the Explosive Ordnance Disposal team arrived on the scene at 6.55pm. They managed to render the device harmless without the need for a controlled explosion, and the area was declared safe for people to return to their homes at 8.30pm.

The device and other evidence found at the scene have been handed over to gardai for further inspection and they have launched an investigation into the incident.
