Getting a train to work tomorrow? You might want to rethink that…


A nationwide train strike will go ahead as planned on Friday morning, it was confirmed this evening.

The planned industrial action by Irish Rail workers means there will be no DART, Commuter or Inter-City train services between 6am and 9am tomorrow.

A limited service will operate from 9am onward but disruptions should be expected. Certain services prior to 6am are expected to operate as normal.

Talks this evening between Irish Rail and the trade unions SIPTU and NBRU collapsed with no compromise reached.

The train stoppage will likely have knock-on effects later in the day, though the trains should run as normal for the rest of the Bank Holiday Weekend.

A total of 41 Dart services, 45 Dublin Commuter services, 30 Cork Commuter services, and 42 Intercity/regional services are expected to be cancelled during the rush-hour strike tomorrow, with another one threatened for November 6th.

Talks over the dispute on payment and productivity took place into the early hours of the morning throughout the week, but no deal to call off the planned action was reached.
