Does anyone know whats going on with the maynooth line.

On arriving at tara street i heard that the 21:55 ex pearse was cancelled due to an accident on the line.

I couldnt find anything constructive on the irish rail website

And the reason for the cancellations, generic 'accident' doesn't cut it

Tragically someone lost their life at liffey junction.

I was looking back at the howth disruption line thread and good information was relayed.

What was the difference between the two?

Have people been told in this case that services are back to normal or is it enough to delete it?

As I have said before, they need a simple template

What has gone wrong and where, be specific

What has been effected, routes or specific trains

How long will it be before things return to normal

What are the alternative arrangements, bus etc
