Thurs 04 Oct 2012 - Army Bomb Disposal Team Makes Safe Two Viable Improvised Explosive Devices .

An Army Bomb Disposal Team made safe two viable Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) in Darndale, Dublin this afternoon.

The Defence Forces deployed the team to Tara Lawn, Darndale following a request from the Gardai as part of a planned operation; the area had been cordoned by the Gardai and local residents were evacuated to a safe location.

The team arrived on scene at 11.05am and examined the devices which were located inside a disused outhouse.

The devices were made safe in situ without the need for a controlled explosion and then removed to a secure military location for further examination.

The scene was declared safe at 1.05pm; the remains of the devices will be handed over to the Gardai later today to assist with their investigations.
