The bomb disposal team was called in to deal with a 'device' found on railway tracks in Dublin this afternoon.

Gardai received the call at approximately 12pm that the potentially dangerous object had been located at Kilbarrack.

A garda spokesperson confirmed that the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) attended the scene that was sealed off for a number of hours.

Rail services were suspended on the northbound line between Raheny and Howth/Malahide.

An Irish Rail spokesperson told that bus services were provided for commuters.

Dublin Bus accepted all rail tickets in affected areas while services were down.

The scene of the incident has since been declared safe and the services have resumed.

Full details of the details of the device have yet to be determined.
