Commuters will be happy to hear that rail services will be fully operational today as the threatened industrial action has been called off.
Iarnród Éireann has told customers that full rail services will operate on all routes today (Friday November 6th) after the threatened industrial action by NBRU and SIPTU train drivers has been called off.
All mainline, commuter and Dart services are running however some delays are expected.
UPDATE: Full rail services will operate today. Industrial action called off as talks conclude & matters referred to Labour Court.
