A SUSPECT DEVICE has been made safe after being found in a garden in Ronanstown, Dublin this evening.

The device was in an overgrown area of a garden in a private residence and may have been there for some time.

Members of the Army Bomb Disposal Team arrived at the scene at around 8.30 this evening.

The area was cordoned off and a number of houses were evacuated, while road closures were put in place for public safety.

The device was found to be viable and taken apart at the scene.

The scene was declared safe at 9.30pm and the Defence Forces say that have handed ‘items of an evidential nature over to the Gardaí to assist them with their investigation’.

This is the 100th call out to 36 viable devices so far in 2014.
