The latest transport updates as the entire country braces for Storm Emma

Orlaith Condon

Storm Emma is expected to make landfall around mid-afternoon.

Met Éireann upgraded their weather warning to a Status Red for the entire country last night, and it will remain until 3pm tomorrow, Friday.

It comes as Taoiseach Leo Varadkar urged people to follow the safety warnings about the expected blizzard conditions, urging people to stay indoors after 4pm on Thursday.

However, transport links have yet to completely shut down.

Here are the latest transport updates for those relying on it today.


Bus Éireann has cancelled all services in light of the updated red weather warning across the country.

That includes their Expressway services. You can follow the latest updates here.


Irish Rail will be operating until lunchtime today, however, many services have already been cancelled.

  • M3 Parkway to Clonsilla/Docklands all trains cancelled
  • No Newbridge/Hazelhatch to Grand Canal Dock services
  • 06.30 Carlow to Dublin Heuston cancelled
  • Cobh/Midleton: Hourly service operating

  • Waterford to Limerick Junction: all trains cancelled
  • 11.20 Dublin Heuston to Portlaoise and 11.25 Portlaoise to Dublin Heuston cancelled
  • Bus transfers between Limerick and Ennis due to a separate local flooding issue.

DART services are running this morning but there are some delays.

A list of final services is available here.
