Thousands of Dublin shoppers evacuated after two explosive devices are set off in city centre store.

On 20 April 1985, two bombs were found in Dunnes Stores, Henry Street in Dublin. The first bomb exploded inside the shop after being hidden in a biscuit tin. The second device was found in a hold-all at the rear of the shop and was diffused by the army bomb disposal team.

No-one was injured in the incident and minimal damage was caused. The Irish National Liberation Army (INLA) admitted responsibility for the attack. At that time twelve employees were protesting after refusing to handle South African goods as part of a protest against the apartheid regime in the country.

The INLA claimed that the devices were planted because Dunnes Stores supported apartheid in South Africa..
