Default Delays this evening

All Northbound DART's, Drogheda and Maynooth services were delayed 15-20 mins between 18.15 and 19.15 this evening. Nothing on the displays, on the trains or via announcements. Any idea's what was up?
Also noted significant increase in families on the DART this evening - passengers were left behind on my 6 carriage refurb DART heading towards malahide around 18.30 (it was one of the delayed one's so not sure of the official time). Was there something on in the RDS?
Also, as always, the web based Realtime checker indicated no delays

Same overcrowding again tonight-Disney on Ice in the RDS. Must finish around 6pm. Delays a lot less though.
To be fair, the delays had probably cleared from Connolly etc. by 7pm last night, but the Drogheda service I was on sat behind a late running Malahide DART last night, hence why we were delayed for so long.
Yet again tonight, I noticed the Realtime info showed no delays. But yet the beta version for Connolly arrivals showed the true extent of the delays. Strange that 2 travel information applications on the same website, for the same station, can give 2 different sets of times ...

Connolly one is the real deal
