Major DART and train disruption following 'tragic incident'

There are major delays this morning on Dart services and commuter trains in Dublin after a "tragic incident" at Howth Junction station.

A man was killed when he was struck by a train at about 6.30am this morning.

Irish Rail says that emergency services are attending the scene at the station and that the disruption is expected to continue throughout the morning at peak travelling times.

There are no Dart services operating between Malahide/Howth and Harmonstown.

Northern Commuter trains are operating from Newry/Dundalk/Drogheda to Malahide only while the Belfast Enterprise will have a bus transfer in place between Dublin Connolly and Drogheda.

Dublin Bus will accept rail tickets but significant capacity issues are expected.
