Public Transport Operators Gradually Return to Normal Capacity Following Storm Debi Disruptions

Several public transport operators are resuming normal capacity after facing disruptions from Storm Debi. Iarnród Éireann has lifted speed restrictions across the entire rail network, although delays are anticipated due to earlier issues. The train line between Athlone and Portarlington was temporarily closed due to fallen trees, affecting services between Dublin and Galway, Westport, and Athlone. Bus Éireann is also experiencing disruptions, urging passengers to check for updates on their website.

Dublin Bus and Go-Ahead services were initially impacted, with normal services expected to resume fully. While Luas services on the red line have resumed, the green line is delayed until 2 p.m. due to a tree blocking the tracks at Beechwood.

Dublin Airport remains open, but flights to and from various destinations are delayed. Passengers are advised to check with their airlines for updates before travelling to the airport. Cork and Shannon airports are operating normally, with some flight delays reported.

The National Emergency Co-ordination Group has cautioned road users about hazardous conditions, including downed power lines and debris, resulting from the severe winter storm. Authorities emphasise the need for caution and adherence to safety measures during these challenging weather conditions.
