It could be because Irish Rail made such a mess of the "consultation" by telling people what they were doing but not listening, that they were told to go back and do it properly. There is an EU...

Does anyone know if these "meet the manager" sessions are something that they have to do for the customer charter/ public subvention, or a genuine attempt to consult with the public? Do they listen...

The noise caused by the normal running of the trains /shunting along the 3 tracks from Inchicore to Heuston would be nothing compared to the noise caused by tunnel boring, removal of 3.5km worth of...

Luas from Citywest will take you an age to get into town, and the Citywest people will no doubt charge you a nice premium to park. You will also be spending a lot more time on the M7/M8. Doesn't...

20:08 Tullamore to Heuston

I think this might have been 18:10 from Westport.
