Rail passengers travelling on the Galway to Athlone line faced lengthy delays yesterday because of a face mask row.

The 17.20 service should have taken less than an hour but was stopped at Ballinasloe because of debris on the line.

The train was ready to go after 7pm but was delayed again because a man was refusing to cover his face.

Gardaí were called in to take him off, but arrived to find the train had left him behind shortly before 8pm.
