Delays on Cork-Dublin services after train strikes herd of deer

Iarnród Éireann says there will be delays to some services this evening after a train struck a herd of deer.

The incident happened on the 16:25 train from Cork to Dublin, between Thurles and Limerick Junction.

The train suffered mechanical damage, and the deer were killed as a result.

That train is on the move again after a 40-minute wait, while all other Cork, Limerick and Kerry services may be subject to slight delays.
