Cable theft disrupts Dublin rail services

Thousands of Dublin commuters have been disrupted this morning after Irish Rail cables were stolen overnight.

There are currently no DARTs or rail services operating between Bray and Dalkey, and only a limited service between Dalkey and Dun Laoghaire.

Dublin Bus is accepting rail tickets for customers from stations south of Dun Laoghaire.

Irish Rail spokesperson Barry Kenny says normal services should resume shortly.

"We are hopeful it will be solved fairly quickly," he said.

"Obviously there will be disruption for people in the early morning but for the heart of the peak demand, we're hopeful to have full services.

"However, that can change, we will obviously keep media and our twitter account updated with the latest information as to how services are affected."
