It has been reported in the past few minutes that the bomb scare at RTE buildings in Donnybrook earlier this afternoon has turned out to be a hoax.
Reports say staff have since returned to the television building shortly after 5pm following an extensive Garda search of the premises.
The news comes after staff at the national broadcaster were forced to leave the premises when Gardaí arrived at the Donnybrook premises amid reports of a suspect device at the building shortly after 4pm.
However in the past hour Gardaí have said no explosive devices were found at the premises and they are treating the incident as a hoax.
It is believed staff have since returned to the building were they will resume their on air duties.
