As gridlock Dublin endures the rail strike, Hailo goes absolutely mental


With the Irish Rail strike taking place today – many commuters had no choice but to raid the piggy bank and hop in a cab to get to work on time.

So understandably, Hailo was rather busy. In fact, it was all-out Hailo MAYHEM this morning. 

As a result, we're guessing the hard-working company was raking in a serious amount of cash, though at least the good sports offered a 20 percent discount off the metre for peak-time travel.

And in Hailo's head office, operations executive Kevin Clarke had tweeted earlier that it was "full steam ahead," playfully adding: "Send coffee please."

They furthermore confirmed that the app had gone into "overdrive". 

The commotion also means that as well as #railstrike, (not to mention #adele in light of her new video release), @hailoireland is currently trending in the capital.

Thankfully for those who didn't have to be at their desks for 9am, the disruption to rail services has now ended.
