Meanwhile, there is also a delay on the Tralee/Heuston line after anti-social behaviour on board a train caused a 25 minute delay. A man was removed from the train after gardai were called due to alleged "drunken and abusive" behaviour. The train is now en route again according to Irish rail.
Elsewhere, traffic is heavy on the m50 after a collision on the M50 between junction seven Lucan and Junction nine which has been cleared.
