GARDAÍ WERE CALLED to the Salthill and Monkstown train station last night after a fight broke out among teens on a Dart.

A large group of youths boarded the northbound Dart last night and were shouting in a carriage. A fight broke out between five of them and the Dart had to be stopped at Salthill and Monkstown station.

Passengers moved to other carriages on the train and gardaí were called to the scene.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail said gardaí addressed the situation and the Dart moved on after 30 minutes. No arrests were made.

Commenting on the incident this morning, local Fianna Fáil councillor Cormac Devlin said it is “unacceptable that Dart services can be held hostage by a group of thugs”.

“The public have every right to expect a reliable service and feel secure as they go about their business”.
