Due to the failure of the 11:05hrs Connolly - Sligo service at Ashtown, Maynooth and Docklands services are currently suspended until further notice. Dublin Bus are currently honouring all rail tickets 11:00hrs service Sligo - Connolly will terminate in Maynooth with a bus transfer to Connolly 13:05hrs Connolly - Sligo service will begin from Maynooth with a bus transfer from Connolly to Maynooth Iarnród Éireann apologises for any inconvenience this may cause

This sounds a bit serious for a train failure, seems to be taking a long time!

Lucky for some! The silence of these folks are deafening. There has been no update for ages. Does it take that long to remove a broken down train?

Explains most of the problem in Irish Rail

Over 2 hours to sort out a failed train is ridiculous. No reason services could not be maintained Maynooth - Consilla

in all fairness I wouldn't think a service from maynooth to clonsilla would be much use considering most people would be going to or from the City.

But could they not have maintained a limited service with single line running?

Much better bus service into the city from Clonsilla. Most people working in Intel in Leixlip live in Maynooth.

Single line running isn't workable with all the level crossings
