Irish Rail has apologised to customers who were “caught up in a very distressing situation” while travelling on the Bray service yesterday afternoon.

In a statement on Sunday, Irish Rail said the 1.45pm Connolly/Bray train was forced to stop on its approach to Bray when “a number of people forced open doors and walked on the track”.

The railway company was forced to suspend services as a result. However, many passengers took to social media to complain about a lack of air conditioning on board.

Communications officer Barry Kenny said yesterday was a “hugely busy day” as the Bray Air Show took place along with the All-Ireland Final.“

We obviously apologise to people that were caught up in what was a very distressing situation for many customers,” 

“It was obviously a hugely busy day, at 2.55pm, the last of what was nine additional Darts that we operated for the Bray Air Show was waiting for a platform just outside of Bray Station.
