Delays remain on Irish Rail services after vandals break in and destroy signalling equipment
Delays of up to 90 minutes were expected this evening.

Update 7.25pm

THERE WERE DELAYS of up to 90 minutes to Irish Rail services in and out of Heuston this evening, after vandals destroyed signalling equipment.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail told that a number of people gained access to the signalling apparatus at the unused Kishoge station near Clondalkin in Dublin.

Once inside they proceeded to destroy all of the equipment.

Just after 7pm, Irish Rail confirmed that normal signalling is back in operation at Heuston after the earlier issues.

Having earlier cancelled Portlaoise services, it said that the 6.30pm Portlaoise to Heuston, and the 7.45pm train in the opposite direction, would operate.

All other intercity services remained subject to delays, which it said would ease as the evening went on.
