Hoax bomb alert in Dublin

A suspect device which led to a large part of north Dublin being sealed off on Sunday night was later declared a hoax by army experts.

The incident unfolded at the Gateway apartments in Ballymun at around 8.40pm when the device was discovered outside an apartment.

A major security operation started and the army bomb disposal team were called to the scene before the area was made safe shortly after 10pm.

Sources say that there has been major tension in the area in recent weeks since the release of a notorious local criminal.

Sunday night's inciident is not linked to him according to sources.
