i remember in the snows of 2010 that the train service wasn't that madly affected in fact they were the only thing running at one stage. I was on a cork train which was stopped due to landslide near portarlington, thats the only weather related thing i can recall causing massive effect.
You forgetting all the signal faults, frozen points etc. The ICR were failing by the hour at one stage, overall they did a good job but always room for improvement!

Some insane weather out there today.

I'm surprised galway line is okay given the level of flooding around parts of the city.

The 13.05 connolly sligo was also delayed due to a fallen tree around leixlip sorted now

And Irish rail say Lansdowne road is currently closed due to high winds and fallen debris!

Atlantic is showing her true force today!
