An Aer Lingus Airbus A330-200, registration EI-DAA performing flight EI-141 from Dublin (Ireland) to Miami,FL (USA), departed Dublin's runway 16 at 15:45L (14:45Z) and was climbing out.

Another aircraft taxiing for departure from Dublin's runway 16 was about to arrive at the holding point runway 16, was told to hold short of runway 16 but reported the departure ahead had gone into the grass and may have broken runway lights. Grass was on the area of the piano keys runway 16.

Tower told subsequent departures there may be broken runway lights at the right hand side in the line up area and there was some grass on the runway at the right hand side in the line up area from a previous heavy departure. Tower subsequently cleared "Rescue 15" to check the runway, squeezing the runway inspection in just before an approach that was 7nm out. Rescue 15 reported a number of runway lights were broken and there were tyre tracks in the grass, runway was good to go however. Tower continued to use runway 16 for arrivals and departures continuing to advise departures of the grass on the right hand side and broken right hand runway lights in the line up area of runway 16.

The A330 meanwhile levelled off at initial cruise level 370 and was enroute about 280nm northwest of Shannon (Ireland), when ATC informed the aircraft they suspected EI-141 had broken a number of runway lights, there were tyre tracks in the grass. The crew decided to return to Dublin, where the aircraft landed safely about 1:50 hours after departure.
