Gardaí called to anti-social behaviour on Galway train

Galway Daily news New timetable adds stops on Galway train services

A train travelling from Dublin to Galway today was delayed by half an hour after anti-social behaviour forced it to make an unscheduled stop.

The 15:35 Heuston to Galway train was forced to halt in Kildare before it even made it to its first scheduled stop in Portarlington this afternoon.

It was forced to wait in Kildare for the arrival of gardaí to deal with anti-social behaviour on board Irish Rail said.

The service is now expected to arrive in Ceannt Station just before 6pm, a delay of half an hour.

The incident had a minimal knock on effect for later trains on the Galway line, with the 16:30 service only suffering an 11 minute delay.
