It happened just after 4pm and staff had to come off air due to the threat.

Other parts of the Donnybrook campus, such as the radio building, are not believed to have been evacuated, meaning the Ray D’Arcy Show is able to continue broadcasting.

However, it is not yet known if the Six One News will air this evening.

Gardaí are at the scene.
