Irish Rail confirms rail services to resume between Limerick and Ennis

Flooding at Ballycar from a previous flood event in 2014.

THE RAIL line between Limerick and Ennis will reopen this coming weekend after flooding on the line forces Iarnród Éireann to suspend rail services.

Now, the transport company has confirmed that the rail line will reopen on Saturday (April 20) at 4pm.

Flooding at Ballycar in March forced the line to close for just over a month, however Iarnród Éireann has said that the flood waters have receded enough to reopen the line.

Bus transfers will remain in place until Saturday afternoon.

On Saturday, the 6.15pm service from Limerick to Galway will operate, as well as the 7.50pm Limerick to Galway service and the 8.30pm Limerick to Ennis service.

All services will operate as normal on Sunday.

Iarnród Éireann apologised to passengers for the inconvenience caused by the flooding over the past month.
