Surely then Irish Rail can pull you up also for misuse of the safety equipment if they wanted to? 2000 fine for doing so isn't it?

Now if the thug was on fire it would be a different story :D

Mark if you get a chance can you also get the cross-route tickets checked, I think there is a similar problem here. My usual ticket from Arklow to Newbridge went up from 22.20 to 24.20, yet each...
