IRISH RAIL HAS resumed services through Connolly Station in Dublin, after reports of a truck striking the Amiens St bridge caused services to be stopped this evening.

This was the second time that a truck was reported to have hit Amiens St Bridge today, after an earlier incident also caused delays.

An Irish Rail spokesperson told TheJournal.ie: “We’ve just got the all clear now so trains are moving again.

There will be delays of up to 30 minutes, but that will ease. This was the second truck hitting that bridge today.

The Irish Rail spokesperson added it was important for hauliers to be aware of height restrictions on the roads in and around town.
