Inter-Agency Operation Targeting Graffiti on Irish Rail Train Carriages - 9th and 10th October 2021

Issue Date: 11/10/2021

Gardaí have arrested three people following an incident of alleged criminal damage at Clontarf Train Station on Sunday 10th October 2021 at approximately 3pm.

An inter-agency operation was established involving Gardaí in DMR North and Iarnród Éireann targeting incidents of graffiti and criminal damage to train carriages on the North Dublin train line.

As part of this operation Gardaí conducted patrols of rail lines over the past weekend in an effort to target groups involved in this activity.

While on patrol on Sunday afternoon, a number of people were detected spraying graffiti on a train carriage at Clontarf Train Station. Three males, aged in their 20s, were apprehended by Gardaí and arrested.

They were taken to Clontarf Garda Station where they were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, 1984. All three have since appeared before the courts charged in connection with the case.

The investigation is ongoing.
