Enterprise rail service suspended after fatality

By Staff Reporter

The cross border Enterprise rail service was suspended yesterday evening after a fatal incident on the track.

Irish Rail services between Dublin and Belfast were suspended after the incident near Skerries in Co Dublin. The operator said that services have since resumed and would operate this morning as normal.

Irish Rail spokeswoman Jane Creegan said last night: "Due to an incident just outside Skerries involving the 1900 service from Connolly to Belfast, services are suspended between Connolly and Drogheda.

"Gardai and emergency services are at the scene in Skerries and we hope that the line will reopen later this evening."

The Irish Sun reported that it was understood that the person lost their life after they were struck on the line by the 7pm Connolly to Belfast train just outside Skerries station.
