Gardai raided a flat in Ulster Street in Phibsboro this afternoon and found a number of suspect devices. The street was closed off while members of the Army bomb squad dealt with the devices. A spokesperson later said the devices examined at the scene were five pieces of pipe, but no explosive material or other bomb-making components were found. However, it is understood the pipe was cut to be used as bombs.
