'Device' discovered under car in Tallaght
GARDAI are investigating the discovery of a viable explosive placed under a car in a Dublin suburb.
A number of householders were evacuated from their homes in the Glenshane area of Jobstown, Tallaght, south Dublin last night after a viable Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was found under a car in a private residence in the area.
The Army Bomb Disposal Team was called to the scene at 9.25pm and a number of local houses were evacuated. A cordon was set up and traffic restrictions were put in place as the team made safe the device without the need for a controlled explosion.
The device was taken to a military location for a technical exam in which it was established that the device was a viable explosive.
Residents returned to their homes around 10.15pm when the area was declared safe.
Gardai are continuing their investigation into the incident.
