The Army Bomb Disposal Unit has been called to a St Vincent de Paul charity shop in Terenure, south Dublin this afternoon after a donor handed in a box of antiques that contained a grenade.

It’s understood that the device is not viable, however the bomb disposal unit is examining the weapon to ensure it is safe.

A source said the weapon was found in a box that was turned into the shop by an elderly donor.

Independent.ie has contacted the charity shop for comment.
