Residents had to be evacuated from their homes after the discovery at a private residence in Finglas.

The device was found at a property in the Tolka Valley Park area of Finglas, Dublin, before noon today.

The Defence Forces deployed their Explosive Ordnance Disposal team to the scene and the device was made safe with a controlled explosion at 12.30.

The device was then removed for further technical examination where it was confirmed it was a viable device.

The Gardai are now investigating.
