The Tallaght Garda Station has been evacuated and was presently closed to the public.

This evening, a Garda Sochána officers on patrol in the Tallaght neighbourhood detained a guy.

A preliminary search of a suitcase in his possession revealed items that were cause for worry.





He was charged under Section 30 Offences Against the State Act, 1939.

The Garda Station has been evacuated out of caution, and the Irish Defense Forces Explosive Ordnance Disposal has been called in.

A few roads are now closed and traffic has been diverted.

Tallaght Garda Station has now reopened.
