The Minister from Transport, Leo Varadkar has raised the issue of overcrowding on the Sligo-Dublin train with Iarnród Éireann and the National Transport Authority following a query by Deputy Tony McLoughlin.

Minister Varadkar said “Concerns about overcrowding have been raised with the Chief Executive of Iarnród Éireann and I understand that the company has already responded and re-introduced larger carriages to accommodate passengers where this has been considered necessary. The Chief Executive has agreed to continuous monitoring of carriage levels on both DART and Intercity services to ensure they match passenger demand”.
