Sadness as body found by DART line

The remains of a man in his 50s were found by the DART line between Greystones and Bray early last Wednesday morning.

The man, aged 53, and was a resident of Ballinteer.

Gardaí said that the death was a 'personal tragedy' and that no foul play is suspected.

Dart services between Greystones and Bray were suspended on Wednesday morning from approximately 7.30 a.m. to just after 11 a.m.

Gardaí attended the scene and the remains were removed from the area by undertakers Thomas Murphy & Sons via the Raithin na Cluig car park at the Bray end of the Cliff Walk.

The body of the man was discovered at the first tunnel at Bray Head. It is understood that a driver on an earlier train saw a person by the line and it was later discovered upon investigation that the man was dead. A spokesperson for Irish Rail confirmed that he was not struck by a train.

While there was some disruption for commuters on Wednesday morning, Dublin Bus accepted train tickets and alternative arrangements were made to accommodate people travelling on the Rosslare to Dublin line.

Services travelling from Bray station were not impacted as a result of the incident.
