Trains delayed in Dublin as truck hits bridge near Aviva Stadium

The crash happened as the nearby Aviva Stadium was hosting a rugby international.

TRAIN SERVICES HAVE resumed between the Grand Canal Dock and Lansdowne Road stations in Dublin after a truck hit a bridge. 

The collision took place at the bridge crossing South Lotts Road at Slattery’s pub in Beggars Bush. 

The crash happened as the nearby Aviva Stadium was hosting a rugby international between Ireland and Italy which kicked off at 2pm

Services were suspended for a period but Irish Rail has now said that trains are running again with delays of up to 30 mins. 

The delays also come ahead of the All-Ireland football semi-final in Croke Park between Dublin and Mayo which throws in at 5pm.

Iarnród Éireann has said that it will provide updates on services when they are available.
