There were 89 incidents at level crossings around the country last year, of which 20 were serious.
Figures from Irish Rail say the incidents resulted in a person, vehicle, or property being struck by a train or barrier.
The majority of them involved vehicles, while five involved pedestrians.
In one incident in Dublin, a lady pushing a pram was hit by the barrier as it closed, narrowly avoiding serious injury.
Separately, a pedestrian under the influence of alcohol was spotted on the tracks, having ignored level crossing warning signs that a train was approaching.
There are more than 150 unattended railway level crossings around the country, most of them on minor roads with little traffic.
