An Army Bomb Disposal Team has made safe three suspected Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in Naas, Co Kildare.

The Defence Forces deployed the team earlier on request from An Garda Síochána.

A cordon was set up in the surrounding area to ensure public safety.

The Army Bomb Disposal Team arrived at 4.15pm and carried out an assessment.

They proceeded to make safe the three suspect devices - and scene was declared safe at 9.30pm.

The devices have now been removed to a secure military installation for further examination.

The Defence Forces say material of an evidential nature will be handed over to An Garda Síochána.
