IRISH RAIL CANCELLED a rush hour commuter train this evening as it was sprayed with graffiti.

A spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that passengers were accommodated on a later service.

The vandalism was described as causing “extensive damage” to the 6.10pm train from Dublin Connolly to Maynooth.

Irish Rail added that its policy is to remove trains from service if they are damaged.

We try to have a zero tolerance approach. Part of the goal of vandalism is that it is seen extensively so we try to stop that when possible.

The spokesperson added that, “The graffiti was material and tags we would be familiar with from repeat offenders.”
