Israeli embassy security incident in Dublin confirmed as false alarm

A suspicious package was discovered at the premises earlier today, prompting an evacuation.

Updated at 1.35pm

A SECURITY ALERT at the Israeli Embassy in Dublin has ended following an earlier report of a suspicious package at the premises.

An army bomb disposal unit was dispatched to the scene earlier today to examine the object. The incident has since been confirmed as a false alarm.

The embassy building, Carrisbrook House on Ballsbridge’s Northumberland Road, was evacuated while the package was examined, but the alert has ended and the Defence Forces team has left the scene.
