Irish Rail are warning customers of delays after a passenger suffered a seizure on board a train this morning.

The 5:30am Galway to Heuston train was delayed at Portarlington for 35 minutes as an ambulance was called to assist the sick passenger.

The incident has been dealt with but Irish Rail are warning passengers that there may be some knock-on delays this morning.

Meanwhile in Cork, services were suspended in the Cobh station as a fire alarm is going off in a nearby building.

Irish Rail said that the station has now re-opened.
