US officials have issued a security alert for this weekend's Longitude festival in Dublin.
However, gardaí say they do not comment on 'statements made by third parties'.
The festival is getting underway in the capital's Marlay Park, and will continue until Sunday.
However, the US Embassy here today issued an alert for American citizens.
That was echoed by the US Department of State on Twitter:
#Dublin #Ireland: Reports indicate a potential for violence at the Longitude Festival taking place from July 5-7 in Marlay Park. Police have increased event security and are monitoring the situation. Be aware of your surroundings and exercise caution if in the area. pic.twitter.com/buBHuD5JRo

On their website, the Embassy claimed: "Reports indicate a potential for violence at the Longitude Festival taking place from July 5-7, 2019, in Marlay Park, Dublin.
"Local police are aware of the threat and will conduct comprehensive bag and person searches. The police have increased event security and are monitoring the situation."
They urged US citizens here to avoid Marlay Park and surrounding areas, and to 'exercise caution' in the vicinity.
They also advised people to 'keep a low profile' and notify friend and family of their safety.
A Garda spokesperson said they don't comment on third party statements.
They added: "Longitude Festival 2019 is taking place this weekend at Marley Park in Dublin, the festival is being policed appropriately following normal security risk assessment.
"A full and comprehensive policing plan is available on the Garda website www.garda.ie and on all Garda Social Media sites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
"No incidents have been reported to date."
Acts performing at this year's Longitude festival include Pusha-T, Stormzy and Vince Staples.
Tonight's planned headliner - US rapper A$AP Rocky - will not perform as he has been detained by Swedish authorities in relation to an alleged assault last weekend.
