Ref # 2023005-19
Status Open / In progress
Occurrence Self-detrainment of passengers between Shankill & Bray, 24th July 2022
Occurrence Date 24 July 2022

Basis for Recommendation

Although, it is noted that IÉ were acting in what they considered the best interests of passengers; and members of An Garda Síochána may not be as familiar with the hazards associated with the railway. IÉ failed to comply with directions given by members of An Garda Síochána; this is likely as a result of no formal established procedures.


IÉ should engage with the relevant parties of An Garda Síochána to ensure that there is a shared understanding at CTC of when and how instructions from An Garda Síochána should be complied with. This can be practiced through IÉ-RU incident simulations where An Garda Síochána are in attendance.
