The Army bomb squad was called to North Dublin
The Army bomb squad was called to North Dublin after an incident on Tuesday night.
Garda officials were also summoned to the scene.
Emergency official received calls about a suspicious device and the Ferrycarrig Road in Coolock was closed off a result.
This morning, it emerged that the situation was a hoax with Gardai confirming the news to Independent.ie
Last month, Dublin’s O’Connell Street was evacuated after a bomb scare in the area.
Armed Gardai were forced to swoop in on the Eason flagship store in the capital on April, 22.
Reports suggest that security officials were seen entering popular store around 5pm.
A Garda spokesperson told Independent.ie that the evacuation was ordered after a bomb threat was received.
“Customers were requested to leave the building shortly before 5pm.
“Armed gardai were then seen entering the premises,” said the publication at the time.
No injuries were reported and police were “satisfied” that it was a hoax.
Nobody was arrested in relation to what happened.
