Irish Rail has released a video that shows people risking their lives by crossing railway lines in front of trains. The minute-long clip is accompanied by the caption 'Crossing railway tracks is not part of your train journey - stay off the tracks or it could be a short cut to death.'

While nobody in the video appears to be harmed, there are a few very narrow escapes. A number of people can be seen walking across the lines and in some cases, they reach the other side just before a speeding train arrives.

You can view the clip shared by Irish Rail below:

Is the short cut really worth it? A very important message and one we should all take note of.
