Iarnród Éireann has launched “extensive operations” to address anti-social behaviour on the Dublin DART line after a woman fell under a train last month.

Gardaí are investigating the incident at Howth Junction Dart Station on April 1st.

Footage of the incident shows the woman hurrying to catch the train before a youth lunges at her.

A second youth then pushes his bike towards her, knocking her towards the tracks.

The woman was rescued by onlookers before the train began to move off.

On Breakfast Briefing this morning Iarnród Éireann spokesperson Barry Kenny said the incident was “disgraceful.”

“Thankfully, she wasn’t seriously injured but it was disgraceful,” he said.

“The Gardaí responded and we have had extensive operations in that area, including at Howth Junction Station in recent weeks – both to assist in the essential travel measures and address anti-social behaviour.

“That work is continuing and will continue to ensure we have the resources there to protect people and make sure it is a safe environment for travel.”

Gardaí said they are investigating the incident.

No arrests have yet been made.
