GARDAÍ WERE CALLED to the scene of an argument between two sets of GAA fans at the weekend.
Gardaí say they were called to an affray on board the Dublin-Belfast train on Saturday. Gardaí boarded the train at 10.20pm near Drogheda as fans made their way home from the Tyrone-Armagh match in Croke Park.
An emergency stop button was pressed in the incident, just before Drogheda.
The Irish News today reported that a woman was struck in the incident, which the paper says saw rival fans fighting.
A Garda statement says:
“Irish Rail staff contacted gardaí at Drogheda Garda Station to inform them that there was a disturbance on board a Belfast bound train.
“Gardaí arrived on the scene and boarded the train. They spoke to a number of passengers and calmed the situation down. No complaints were made and no arrests took place. The train departed a short time later without further incident.”
