Three viable devices made safe in Dublin

Three viable devices were discovered near the Ballymun Road area of Dublin this evening.

THREE VIABLE DEVICES in Dublin have been made safe this evening by the Army Disposal Unit.

In response to a request by the Gardaí, the Defence Forces deployed the team to a derelict building on Ballystruan Lane, just off Ballymun road this evening.

Explosives experts arrived on scene at 4.10pm and made safe three viable IEDs which were found in the building.

No controlled explosion was carried out and the scene was declared safe at 5.20pm.

The devices were removed to a military installation for further examination, and are due to be handed over to the Gardaí after examination.

This is the 221st call out of Defence Forces Bomb Disposal Teams so far this year
