Irish Rail is to introduce on the spot fines to those engaged in anti-social behaviour on its trains.

Traditionally, it has only been able to prosecute people through the courts system.

It is now up-skilling some of its staff to issue fines, in certain circumstances.

Company spokesperson Jane Cregan has been speaking to Kildare Today.
