An investigation is underway after the Dublin to Westport train hit a herd of cattle on the rail track near Tullamore yesterday.

Significant damage was caused to the train, and eight cattle were killed in the incident which brought services to a halt on the line serving  Galway and Westport.

No passengers were injured in the incident but there were delays of up to three hours as they were transferred to a replacement train.

Full services are said to be operating again this morning.
