Dublin Airport's Terminal 2 evacuated after fire alert
A smoke alarm was triggered at a café, and a section of the facility was evacuated as a precautionary measure.

A SECTION OF Terminal 2 at Dublin Airport was evacuated for a period this afternoon after a smoke alarm was triggered at a café.

Hundreds of people were told to leave the building when the alarm was raised shortly after 1pm.

It affected everyone on the entrance side of the building — passengers who had already passed through security were not affected, nor where those returning home through the baggage hall.

A spokesperson for the Dublin Airport Authority said it was purely a precautionary measure, and that there was no fire.
