Bus transfers to continue until further notice following Ennis rail flood

in Home/News by

BUS transfers between Ennis and Limerick will continue until further notice, according to Irish rail.

The statement comes as the train line was forced to close again over the weekend due to flooding on the track at Ballycar.

A spokesperson for Irish Rail said: “Iarnród Éireann will monitor flood levels which are continuing to rise, and advise customers on likely service restoration dates when flood levels begin to recede.  We apologise for the inconvenience caused”.

Flood waters rose to a maximum height of 1.60m above the railway track during some flood events, despite works which saw Iarnród Éireann raise the track level by 60 centimetres at Ballycar in 2003.

Those intending to use the Ennis-Limerick service should note that all services between Limerick and Ennis will be substituted by bus, except Sunday 06.50 Limerick to Ennis and 21.40 Ennis to Limerick, which have been cancelled.

All services between Limerick and Galway will be substituted by bus between Limerick and Ennis, with train between Ennis and Galway.

Sixmilebridge Station will have bus transfers to/from Limerick and Ennis, but to a reduced frequency.
