Anti-Social Behaviour Halts Train In Thurles.

Gardai were requested to attend at an incident in Thurles Railway Station yesterday evening.

A train coming from Cork, bound for Dublin, was forced to halt when anti-social behaviour broke out on board.

We understand that the 16:30 train from Cork to Heuston, carrying passengers who had embarked at Cork, was forced to halt at Thurles, when disruptive behaviour caused a technical issue on board.

The passengers were eventually accommodated on alternative services, causing minor delays to other services passing through the Thurles station, as a result of this 16.30 public transport failure.

From May 2020 to the end of April 2021, there have been 37 incidents of antisocial behaviour on Cork rail services or at Cork stations, with incidents ranging from non-compliance with Covid regulations, vandalism, possession of drugs or alcohol, theft and loitering.

We understand further Garda enquiries are now being processed.

Thurles.Info’s Mid-Week Giggle

Thurles.info is delighted that so many of you enjoyed last week’s midweek giggle, so here’s another video that is sure to have you in stitches. Today’s midweek laugh features comedian, radio presenter and TV personality Alan Carr, as he reads a letter that was once sent to an insurance company.

What follows video hereunder is an excruciatingly funny letter that details a series of very unfortunate events involving a Toilet Roll Holder, the Emergency Services and a delicate part of the male anatomy.

As you can gather, in the video, the person who wrote the reply letter, had been asked to do so by his insurance company, because his response to the question “Reason for hospital visit” had been “Stupidity”; thus not seen by the latter as an adequate explaination of matters, necessitating a pay out from the insurance company.
