The Department of Health was evacuated today following the delivery of a suspicious package.
It is understood the package was addressed to Health Minister Simon Harris.
The Army Bomb Disposal Team and specialist units from Dublin Fire Brigade are at the scene, including seven fire units and a chemical incident unit.
Baggot St Lwr will remain closed until further notice both ways between the Fitzwilliam St Lwr jct and the Grand Canal while emergency services deal with incident. Use an alternative route.
We have been informed by emergency services that our office building will not be reopened for some time. All staff should now go home today and monitor this account for further updates.
