Commuters experienced massive delays around Dublin this morning as DART services were suspended due to a ‘tragic incident’.

At around 7.45am, Irish Rail notified passengers of the delays, saying: “Due to a tragic incident on the line, all DART and Commuter services between Raheny and Dublin Connolly are suspended.

At just after 8.30am, DART services were cleared to resume, with one Belfast to Connolly train delayed by over an hour.
