There are major disruptions to Irish Rail services in Dublin this weekend for re-signalling works.

The line will be closed between Connolly and Dun Laoghaire, meaning that there will be no DARTs or trains between these stations.

Services will be only be operating between Howth/Malahide and Connolly, and between Dun Laoghaire and Bray/Greystones.

Dublin Bus will accept valid rail tickets on services between Dun Laoghaire and the city centre.

Irish Rail's Barry Kenny said the line closure is necessary, saying they ordinarily would not carry out work on a June bank holiday weekend "but it is a major work that requires three days":

Dundalk/Drogheda & Maynooth services will also operate to and from Connolly only. 

Rosslare services will operate to/from Bray, with a direct bus transfer in operation between Bray and Connolly.
