Walkinstown Pub Device 'A Hoax'


Share this article


A suspect package found at a pub in Dublin this afternoon was a hoax.

Gardai sealed off Drimnagh Road after being called to the scene near Walkinstown earlier.

Diversions have now been lifted, and Dublin Bus routes are back running as normal.

The device, which it's understood was made to look like a pipe bomb, was found in a building near The Black Forge Inn this afternoon.

Inbound traffic had been advised to divert to Walkinstown Road, while outbound drivers were told to divert to Errigal Road.

Dublin Bus said that "due to a suspect device found on Drimnagh Road" a diversion is in place on Routes 18, 27, 56a, 77a and 151.

All services are now running as normal.
