    In particular, customers should note major works resulting in the line being closed between Grand Canal Dock and Bray from Saturday to Monday inclusive.  Bus operators will accept rail tickets to/from affected areas, with significant additional capacity in place on Saturday afternoon / evening on for travel to/from the city centre for Leinster rugby at Croke Park.
