A landslide along the railway line between Newry, County Down, and Dundalk, County Louth, has disrupted cross-border train services.

The line was closed between the two stations on Thursday evening due to "subsidence" on the track north of Dundalk, according to Translink.

Passengers were bussed between Newry and Dublin in both directions.

The line has reopened but Translink has warned of knock-on delays on Friday.


Translink has apologised "for any inconvenience".

A spokeswoman for the company told BBC News NI that Enterprise services between Belfast and Dublin will operate on Friday.

However, she said there will be "likely delays of 15-20 minutes to northbound services".
