Major disruption to Irish Rail services this Easter bank holiday


If you were hoping to use the train or Dart to get home to see the family this Easter weekend, listen up.

There is major disruption to Irish Rail routes and services due to maintenance and improvement works going on on the line. 

"Customers using our services to and from Heuston, and all connecting services are advised to re-check your times before travelling on affected dates," reads an Iarnród Éireann statement. 

The works will affect train services on the Cork, Tralee, Limerick, Galway, Wastpoert and Waterford lines.

"Iarnród Éireann is continuing its programme of line improvement works on the Dublin to Cork line, focusing this year on the section between Hazelhatch and Thurles."

"The annual investment of €10 million in line improvements will lead to higher reliability, smoother running of trains and with other works deliver consistent 160kph speeds (100 mph)."

"This will deliver journey time improvements for customers."
