The US State Department has issued a security alert for the Longitude festival.
The festival is underway in Dublin and will continue until Sunday.
The Embassy has urged US citizens here to avoid Marlay Park and surrounding areas, and to ‘exercise caution’ in the vicinity.
It’s also advising people to ‘keep a low profile’ and notify friends and family of their safety.
A Garda spokesperson said they’ve been made aware of the warning from US authorities.
