Is there such a thing? On the road I used to work on there was some old bag who used to give out to people about parking there. According to her it was a private road.

I was a student in Maynooth no so long ago. I started in 2000 and graduated in 2004. The difference Maynooth underwent in that time is phenomenal. It barely resembles the place it was when I started...

Yes you will. This is why the desk at Connolly is misleading. Not everyone knows the rules and people think this is an acceptable alternative.

Do a quick survey of the commuting public. Ask them do they know this rule.

Then ask them have they ever bought a ticket at their destination. Then ask them if they believe this is acceptable.

Ah Mark, as usual you are only seeing things in black and white.

IE are full of inconsistencies.
People are often told to pay at the other end.

Does anyone know about this on the Luas? I have had plain clothed people ask to see my ticket and where I'm going (they have RPA badges but I could make one too). Since I have a smart card they ask...

Sorry to dig up an old thread but it is quite and interesting one.

The funny thing is, if the "fly trap" actually pointed out it was a desk for the standard fair, people wouldn't be queuing at it. I...

Hmmm, you're saying it is difficult for a young person to realize it is polite to offer their seat to an elderly / disabled person? You sound charming.

That is because commuters shouldn't expect one. Seats are nice but I do not expect one everyday, rather I am happy if I do get one. :)

That is exactly why they are on time. Someone can correct but I think if it is within 10 / 15 minutes it is considered on time. Most countries say 5.

In Sweden the trains arrive exactly when...

Bio-fuel

I saw that Maxol are now selling unleaded with 5% bio-ethanol. This is quite good, I think a move toward bio-fuel. I would imagine that it is not long before the other petrol companies follow...

This is what caught me out, had I known there was a limit I would done it in two transactions but I had gotten rid of most of it and had about 2.50 left... I won't make that mistake again.
