In a second incident in the city centre, City Square shopping centre was also evacuated this morning following a hoax bomb scare.
The centre has now reopened and it’s business as usual this afternoon.
However, it caused major upset on one of the biggest shopping days of the year.
The alarm was raised this morning by Gardai who received a report of a suspicious device.
On searching the building an empty car in the car park was found with the engine running and windows opened.
This caused some alarm, until the owner could be located.
