Irish Rail passengers have been warned to expect significant delays and overcrowding on Tuesday after an early morning train departed 30 minutes late.

Maynooth commuter services have been impacted following the delayed departure of the 7.55am train.

In a tweet from its official account, Irish Rail said that the delay was due to an earlier train failure down the track.

It added that commuters should prepare for “capacity issues” and that delays of at least 15 minutes are expected to continue throughout the day.
