Irish Rail used Twitter this morning to warn a truck driver who hit a bridge in Dublin and failed to stop that they have his details.

 

There are delays of up to 15 minutes on Dart services after the truck hit a bridge at Clontarf.

 

A bridge inspection has taken place and services have resumed but Irish Rail warned of delays.

From their website

"We have highly trained and experienced staff that remain committed to providing a professional and specialist relocation service"

I didn't think relocating your art and antiques to the middle of an active double railroad was to be advised especially if your collection of locos and rolling stock is in there!:facepalm:
