Security Alert on Mayor Street, Dublin
Perhaps it's because I'm a northerner that I call these 'security alerts' - better known as 'bomb scares/hoaxes'.

The gardaí and the Defence Forces attend to such an incident on the recently opened LUAS tram line to The Point/Docklands. This is just opposite the entrance to Connolly railway station on Amiens Street.

In Belfast, people have learnt to ignore these - in Dublin they still cause quite a stir.
