DART services restored as Gardaí deal with incident at Dublin hostel
A woman has been stabbed in Dublin city centre and Gardaí have dealt with a disturbance at Isaacs Hostel which lead to the closure of some DART services.
The stabbing happened in the Store Street area of the city’s north side.
Her injuries were not thought to be life threatening.
The attack is believed to be connected to a separate incident, which saw train services suspended between Connolly Station and Grand Canal Dock.
