Irish Rail is spending increasingly more hiring security contractors amid growing controversy over the level of antisocial behavior and disruptions on rail services.

New figures show since the start of last year Irish Rail has spent over €11 million on security services, with the amount spent increasing in recent months. In the first three months of this year Irish Rail spent €1.4 million on extra security, which increased to just under €1.6 million for the summer months.
