One of the city's busiest train stations will completely close over 13 weekends in the next two years.

It's so works to repair the roof of Pearse Station can take place.

There's been protective netting in place for years to catch any falling debris from the Victorian era roof.

Now it's finally set to be repaired at a cost of 10 million euro.

Irish Rail has told 98FM News it means the station will have to completely close over 13 weekends between now and June 2020.

During those times northside Darts, Maynooth and Drogheda trains will only go as far as Connolly.

While on the southside Darts and the Rosslare service will terminate at Grand Canal Dock.

Spokesperson Barry Kenny says "as people can understand, we will be using cranes to lift significant sections of the structure onto the building so we will need to shut down the station to do that."

Pearse Station opened in 1834 on the first railway line in the country, with trains running between Westland Row and Dun Laoghaire.
