The army has removed an historic artillery shell which was discovered in a residential area in County Kildare.
Gardaí requested help from the Army Bomb Disposal Team after a suspicious device was found at Blackmiller Hill this afternoon.
Some residents in the area were evacuated as the team dealt with the situation.
A safety cordon was put in place, and the road was closed for a time.
The scene was declared safe just after 5pm this evening.
The Defence Forces are advising members of the public who come across artillery remains from conflicts in the early 20th century, to keep a safe distance, and inform Gardaí.
