Suspect bomb suspends Dublin rail services

A suspect bomb has been found on a rail line in North Dublin.

Gardaí and the defence forces are at the scene north of Kilbarrack.

The line is closed between Raheny and Howth/Malahide.

Drogheda Commuter services and Belfast Enterprise services are also affected.

Dublin Bus is accepting all valid rail tickets.

Barry Kenny from Irish Rail said that the matter is being dealt with by Gardaí and the Defence Forces.

"A member of our line inspection team was walking the route just north of Kilbarrack station, he had concern about an object that he saw, so he alerted our control and we reported it to the Gardaí," said Mr Kenny.

"It was good vigilance on the part of our staff member. Gardaí and the defence forces are leading the operation."
