It is understood a sorting office alerted gardaí on Tuesday morning after discovering the package.

The item was brought to Rathfarnham Garda Station and army bomb experts were called in.

The station was evacuated.

This is the second time the Justice Minister has been at the centre of a security alert.

Just last week, white powder and a swastika were sent to his home.
