Certain trains serving Athy, Kildare Town, Monasterevin, Celbridge/Hazelhatch and Newbridge have been cancelled for the rest of the week.
Irish Rail confirmed in a recent statement that around 20 of its services are being cancelled for the rest of this week due to COVID-19 and close contact absences.
These services will be affected for a number of days: specifically, up to and including Friday.
The following services are cancelled:
Barry Kenny from Irish Rail told host Shane Beatty on Newstalk FM's Breakfast Briefing: "Like every employer, like every service provider at the moment, with the number of cases that are in the country... it isn't something that we can escape.
He added: "We just have - particularly in Heuston at the moment - a number there that means unfortunately this is unavoidable.
Mr Kenny also said that Irish Rail will be working right through this to ensure that we minimise the impact on as many services as possible.
