ALL northbound Commuter Rail and DART services have been restored following an earlier fault at Kilbarrack.

However, delays of up to 30 minutes remain for Southbound Commuter Rail and DART services between Harmonstown and Howth/Malahide.

We were approx 20mins delayed at connolly. Funny announcement onboard (at malahide)stated that were stopping at portmarnock, howth junction and then nonstop to connolly... we then proceeded to stop at Kilbarrack with a further announcment that it was non-stop from Kilbarrack to Connolly! I didn't see the broken dart as the train was like a cattlewagon by then.
