AN EXPLOSIVES DISPOSAL team from the Defence Forces has made safe two viable explosive devices in north Dublin.

The devices were discovered in a disused outhouse in the residential Tara Lawn area of Darndale this morning.

A bomb disposal unit arrived on the scene at 11:05am and was able to neutralise the devices without the need for a controlled explosion.

The devices were then removed to a secure military location for further examination.

The remains of the devices will be handed over to Gardaí for their investigation later today.
