Some Local Train Services Face Disruption This Weekend


Irish Rail is reminding rail customers that services on a number of routes face significant disruption this weekend, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th September, due to planned engineering works.

The works are essential to maintain the rail infrastructure. Customers are advised to check times before travel, with full details at and on the Iarnród Éireann app.

Portarlington to Limerick Junction are changed for operational reasons – therefore a
two hourly service between Cork and Dublin will now operate with rail connections to Kerry and Limerick on Saturday. A normal Sunday timetable will apply on Sunday 25th

Due to signalling and coastal protection works, the line between Dun Laoghaire and Wicklow will be closed. As a result, the following service alterations are in place:
There are no DART services between Dun Laoghaire and Greystones. Dublin Bus and GoAhead will accept rail tickets to/from affected areas. DART services will operate between Howth/Malahide and Dun Laoghaire only.

Dublin Connolly to Rosslare Europort Intercity services will involve bus transfers between Connolly Station in Dublin and Wicklow, in both directions.

There will also be disruption up to October 2nd on the Limerick to Ballybrophy line. On Saturday September 24th three trains will depart from Limerick at later times and on Sunday 25th September the 19.42 train from Ballybrophy to Limerick will depart at 8pm.
For the following days until Sunday October 2nd a bus service will replace train on the route between Limerick to Ballybrophy and Ballybrophy to Limerick.
