Services were suspended on all routes to and from Dublin’s Connolly Station earlier this afternoon, but have since resumed.

LAST UPDATE | Jun 8th 2023, 8:00 PM

IRISH RAIL HAS told customers that delays on some of its services which were caused by a “major signalling issue” are now beginning to ease. 

Services were suspended earlier on all routes to and from Dublin’s Connolly Station, including all DART services, from around 2.10pm to 3.10pm due to the signalling fault. 

In a statement on its website, the transport network said that the fault has since been resolved and DART services, as well as services from Connolly, have resumed.

Newbridge/Hazelhatch to Grand Canal Dock services have also resumed.

Irish Rail said the fault caused significant delays on DART services and services from Dublin’s Connolly to Maynooth, Sligo, Dundalk and Greystones.

Delays were also expected on Northern Commuter services, Phoenix Park Tunnel services, Maynooth Commuter services and Sligo and Belfast Intercity services.

In a tweet this evening, the transport network said the delays are “now beginning to ease”, with delays of between 10 and 30 minutes expected on some services.

“Iarnród Éireann apologises for the inconvenience caused,” the statement concluded.
