Dublin/Waterford line Fridays and Sundays: Alcohol restricted on certain services from 31st May

24 May 2013

In response to customer feedback, the consumption and carriage of alcohol on the 13:15 and 15:10 Dublin to Waterford services on Fridays is prohibited from 31st May 2013 onwards.

This follows repeated instances of groups disturbing other customers on board these specific services due to excessive alcohol consumption.

This is in addition to existing alcohol restrictions on Sundays on the 12.40, 15.10 and 18.05 Waterford to Dublin services.

They will simply take earlier or later trains.

Friday should be a dry day on that route.

They won't travel any lather as most want to make the most of the weekend but if they are prepared to do it for these services then its only a matter of time before the 10.15 on Fridays, Saturdays and the 13.15 on Saturdays get it as well.

The petrol incident a few weeks ago didn't give them much choice in the matter and it had to be done. Will cost them providing 2 security people per train.

Was not on this service but people were talking about it on another service who I was sitting beside and they were saying that a group of lads allegedly after drinking started sniffing petrol from a drum. When driver became aware the guards were called but they allegedly threatened to set it on fire if the guards were called.
