IRISH RAIL SERVICES between Bray and Dún Laoghaire have now resumed after earlier disruption, caused by a fallen tree on the line.

Irish Rail apologises for any inconvenience caused, saying that all DART, Commuter and Rosslare Intercity services are now returning to normal.

Strong weather damaged power lines and knocked a tree onto the Irish Rail lines at Dalkey this morning, leading to a suspension of services between Dalkey and Dún Laoghaire.

Irish Rail has also issued an apology over the failure of the public address systems at DART and Commuter stations at that time.

Meanwhile, heavy snow showers have been reported in Wicklow in the Roundwood, Laragh, Annamore and Aughrim. AA Roadwatch has warned motorists that the Wicklow Gap and Sally Gap are impassable.

Flooding is also a problem in many parts of the country following heavy and persistent overnight rain.
