Harry Potter fans will love this little bit of magic that happened in Heuston yesterday

All aboard the Hogwarts Express!


Your days of reading Harry Potter may be behind you, but you still fantasise about receiving an acceptance letter from Hogwarts and boarding a train at Platform 9 3/4.

So imagine the surprise of some Irish Rail passengers yesterday when they saw this on the departures board.

It couldn’t be… surely?

Be still our beating hearts.

What is this sorcery, you ask?

It was all part of an event organised by Trinity Ents, which saw students board the Hogwarts Express dressed as witches and wizards  to be whisked off to a top secret location.

Bravo, everyone.
