Many Irish Rail services also cancelled with Bus Éireann strike


Bus Éireann has announced an all-out strike, which is in place since midnight last night. 

Talks between five trade unions lasted more than three hours yesterday, and SIPTU’s transport sector organiser, Willie Noone, said the “time for talking is over.”

Now, Iarnród Éireann is being affected by the strike. 

"Iarnród Éireann has advised customers that there will be significant disruption to Intercity rail services today, Friday 24th March, arising from picketing associated with the Bus Éireann dispute," reads a statement from Irish Rail.

"Iarnród Éireann is not a party to this dispute."

Limited services will be available on the Dublin/Cork, Dublin/Limerick, Dublin/Galway, Dublin/Sligo, Dublin/Waterford and Dublin/Rosslare lines.

The 09:00am Sligo to Connolly service and the 09:40am Connolly to Rosslare service are both cancelled. 

The 12.00pm Dublin/Cork service has also been cancelled.
