DART services have been suspended due to an incident on the line between Landsdowne and Dun Laoghaire stations. It could be some time before the line reopens.

A limited service will operate on a loop from Howth / Malahide to Landsdowne and will also run a loop between Dun Laoghaire and Bray / Greystones. Dublin Bus will accept all valid rail tickets.

Some commuter services will be affected to. The 11:35am Gorey service will operate a bus transfer.

Term one under is not used in Ireland, its a London term.

There is nothing wrong with stating the facts of what happened. Irish Rail are less than up front with telling you what went wrong. In light of the right to refunds, incident needs to be clarified.

What would be insensitive would be to state or speculate as to the cause of the incident in the first place. We never do and never will.

Road traffic accidents are referred to exactly the same.

"Male vs dart" goes beyond stating the facts of what happened.

You will never find anyone refer to a car accident as "male/female/child vs car".

But fair enough, it's your site.

They media always do,

Don't see the point in any of this fuss, facts of the matter stated clearly, no speculation. Incident could mean anything Fully inline with standard media reporting practice
