I was on the DART that left Connolly for Greystones at 17.35. I was waiting 5 minutes for the train and there were two announcements made over the pa that a vehicle had struck the bridge at grand canal dock. The end of the message was garbled. The train left on time.When we arrived in Pearse the driver made an announcement that the DART was terminating and going northbound to Malahide.He also told us that Dublin Bus would honour our tickets. Walked to Merrion square and got the bus.Lost about 20 mins.

In the very week that Barry Kenny and the IRHA were on the radio discussing this issue.

What, you mean deliberate? Ah, even by our standards of ranting, raving and bitterness thats over the top. Almost.

sorry... got cought up on both days last week. am still frustrated by letting someone down one of the days of course not deliberate and is the drivers fault not ie in these cases but when you get angry from these problems you dont know who the blame.
