Two viable explosive devices made safe in Dublin

The two devices were discovered on waste ground in Finglas this afternoon.

TWO VIABLE IMPROVISED Explosive Devices (IEDs) have been made safe by a Defence Forces bomb disposal team in Dublin today.

The Defence Forces’ Army Bomb Disposal Team was deployed to a patch of waste ground at the end of Harristown Lane in Finglas this afternoon after a request from Gardaí.

The team arrived on the scene just after 3pm and removed the two devices.

No controlled explosion was carried out and following further examination, the devices were handed over to Gardaí before the scene was declared safe just before 4.30pm.

They were the 51st and 52nd IEDs made safe by the Defence Forces so far this year.
