Dublin Fire Brigade have published pictures as they battled a fire at a renowned Dublin pub.

Five units of the Dublin Fire Brigade were called to The Cuckoos Nest on Greenhills Road in Tallaght at approximately 10pm on Sunday night.

The fire at a unit at the rear of the pub, which closed in 2015, was under control by 11:30pm.

It is unclear what caused the fire in the now derelict building.

A spokesperson for the Dublin Fire Brigadetold independent.ie: "We had five units at the scene which was under control by about 11:30pm. We had cleared the scene at the empty building by midnight. The fire was at a unit within the bar complex."

There were no injuries.

The Cuckoos Nest was bought by the Lynch family in 1962 and ceased trading in May 2015.
