This is from the AA:

According to irish rail the technical fault was the 07:35 connolly belfast at killester

Still doesnt explain why arklow gorey services would be delayed. Would the morning rosslare train not be past connolly at that stage?

It amazing it took them that long to figure it out

Translink are of course a little better, but its not their patch so the notice is fairly impressive

Due to an earlier train failure at Killester, there is currently a 20 minute delay to services on DART and Northern Commuter line. Iarnród Éireann apologises for the inconvenience caused.
