Handy if you're heading up to Croker this Patrick's Day.

Irish Rail have announced extra services will run between Galway and Dublin this St Patrick's Day.

They've added the extra trains to help bring fans travelling from Galway for the All Ireland Club Finals in Croke Park.

This St Patrick's Day, there'll be two Galway teams in the club finals as St Thomas face Ballyhale Shamrocks of Kilkenny in the hurling and Corofin take on Dr Crokes from Kerry in the football.

These extra services will operate in addition to the regular Sunday timetable:

  • 18:45hrs Heuston - Galway (Extra capacity has been added. No alcohol will be served or allowed on board)

They also say security will be on board these trains to ensure the safe and enjoyable travel of all passengers.

Anyone hoping to travel from Galway to Dublin by train on St Patrick's Day is being urged to make reservations as soon as possible. You can make a booking on their website.
