Apparently there was a rejected take off at Dublin this afternoon which lead to runway 28/10 being temporarily closed and runway 16/34 unavailable on notams. A runway inspection was carried out after the RTO and runway shortly re-opened.
Any one know what the rejection was for?

I didn't hear what it was for, but the aircraft in question was the second UAL 757 flight (to IAD); I saw an EI 321 go around, then noticed that the UA 757 was still on the runway; it taxied back to the terminal under its own power, then - at about 2pm - it was towed away from T2, presumably towards the maintenance area.

The RTO could of been from anything I.E Take-off confiuration warning horn, flaps may of been set incorrectly, or the pilots could of seen birds, you only reject ofter 80kias-V1 for a major emergency take-off configuration, engine fire/failure, but under 80kias minor things like flaps...

Incorrectly set flaps for takeoff are certainly not a minor thing.
