An inter-agency operation was established involving Gardaí in DMR North and Iarnród Éireann targeting incidents of graffiti and criminal damage to train carriages on the North Dublin train line.

As part of the operation, Gardaí conducted patrols of rail lines over the past weekend in an effort to target groups involved in this activity.

While on patrol on Sunday afternoon, a number of people were detected "spraying graffiti on a train carriage" at Clontarf Train Station.

Three men, aged in their 20s, were apprehended by Gardaí and arrested for the incident and were taken to Clontarf Garda Station where they were detained under Section four of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984.

All three have since appeared before the courts and been charged in connection with the case. However, Gardaí confirmed on Monday that the investigation is ongoing.
