Bus substitutions in place on Dublin to Belfast railway line this weekend
People planning on travelling to Dublin via the train this weekend are advised that bus substitutions will be in place along the line.
Due to engineering works there will be a bus substitution between Drogheda and Dublin on Easter Saturday, Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday April 20th, 21st and 22nd. The same bus substitutions will also apply on the May Bank Holiday weekend May 4th and 5th.
Passengers have been advised to expect delays of up to 30 minutes on arrival times at Dublin Connolly and Belfast Lanyon Place.
A spokesperson for Irish Rail has advised this could have a particular impact on rugby supporters travelling to the Aviva Stadium on Sunday for Leinster’s Champions Cup semi-final tie with Toulouse.
They said: “Irish Rail would like to advise supporters planning to travel to Dublin on Easter Sunday April 21 for the ‘European Champions Cup’ Semi Final between Leinster and Toulouse at the Aviva Stadium that the Enterprise Service between Dundalk and Dublin Connolly will be a bus substitute transfer between Drogheda and Connolly Station in both directions for the entire day.
“This is due to planned Engineering Works between Malahide and Clongriffin Station on both Saturday April 20 and Sunday April 21. Irish Rail apologise for the inconvenience caused to passengers.”
