Dublin pipe bombs made safe by Army overnight

Three pipe bombs have been made safe in Dublin overnight. The Army bomb squad was deployed to an area of waste ground off the Ratoath Road in Finglas after the explosives were discovered.

The team spent an hour on scene before making the devices safe and removing them to military base for tests.

This is the 166th call out for bomb disposal teams so far this year with 30 viable improvised explosive devices made safe.
