A woman hurled racist abuse at passengers on a train in Ireland, telling one of them to "f*** off back to India", in a row over a bag being placed on a seat.

A video of the incident on the train travelling from Limerick Colbert to Limerick Junction on Sunday was described as "shocking and disgraceful" by the rail operator.

Multiple videos of the woman was filmed and tweeted by fellow passengers on the train. The video was recorded by another female commuter who referes to the lady as "disgusting racist lady" in her tweet. She also went on to worn her of sharing the videos online after the incident.

The Irish Independent reported that the Police in Ireland were investigating the matter on Tuesday.
