Officers at the city’s Pearse Street station are investigating the incident.
It is understood that members of the West Ham squad were spoken to by gardai following reports of an assault. No arrests were made, the Garda spokesman said.
A West Ham spokesman denied that Carroll had been involved in a physical confrontation with a photographer.
“Andy Carroll was in Dublin as part of a social trip with full permission of the management team,” the club said. “Andy agreed to have a number of pictures taken at the request of a photographer who was waiting on the street. Despite this, the photographer then carried on taking photos in the close proximity of Andy and was politely asked to stop by the private security team working on the trip.
“When he then continued taking more photos he was restrained by the security team for Andy’s safety. Eyewitnesses state at no point was there any physical contact between Andy and the photographer.”
