The Army Bomb Squad was called to the Naas Road
Gardaí are continuing to question two men arrested, after explosives were discovered in a car in Dublin last night.
The men aged in their early 30s and 40s were arrested on the Naas Road after the car they were driving was stopped by the Emergency Response Unit at about 7.30pm.
The bomb squad was called to the scene and the device has now been sent for forensic examination.
The men are being detained at Ballyfermot and Ronanstown stations.
