Sources told Independent.ie that security found a hollowed out bullet behind the stage and removed it for examination.

There were a small number of people, mainly staging crew, in the room, when the item was found.

The people were immediately asked to leave as gardai conducted a security sweep of the room.

Satisfied there was no security issue, the workers were allowed back into the room.

Investigations are understood to be on-going.

Mr Kenny was not in the venue at the time but has since arrived and the conference will get underway as planned.
