It appeared to be near the bridge at the old station in Ferns so was probably somebody tipping stuff off that. My sister said it felt like turbulance in an aircraft as the train went over it (she was in the second carriage)
As a follow up my sister had nothing but praise for the IE staff involved, there was only a driver on board and he kept the passengers informed all the way through. When it came time to transfer to the new train the IE engineers looked after everyone very well and even went and picked up snacks and drinks for all the passengers at Arklow.
