A garda on the train at Newbridge
Local gardaí carried out an operation at the rail station in Newbridge and turned back a number of people.
They checked commuter trains travelling to Dublin and while passenger numbers were small the gardaí said some anti-social behaviour (drug abuse and dealing) is continuing on trains.
A number of people were turned back at the station because they had no valid reason to travel. Gardaí in Portarlington and Portlaoise also took past in yesterday's operation.
