Default 16:40 Gorey Service - Delayed

Train is currently delayed due to technical difficulties, stuck at Connolly I believe. Anyone any idea what's happening? No details as usual not even an estimated time

I saw a 6-car 22000 set stuck north of the platforms at Connolly as I was passing through at 1645- seemed to be a lot of staff on board, though it may have been the stock for the 1705 Sligo(it's usual platform 4 was empty). I imagine it is being split into two three car sets, one to Sligo and one to Gorey, seeing as the only railcars around Connolly were it and a 8-piece 29000 stuck on the wash road waiting to form the 1715 Longford.

They never advised on the train anyway, it was 10 mins late getting into Rathdrum yesterday. Not too sure why as it was on time at Tara St.
