Local commuters could face disruptions as Irish Rail strike looms

Irish Rail users in Kilkenny and Carlow could soon face major disruptions as more industrial action looks likely.

Unions say driver frustration is reaching ‘fever pitch’ – with a row over pay and conditions one of the main factors.

The National Bus and Rail Union says industrial action is being considered, but would be a “last resort”.

Irish Rail says it hasn’t been notified of any strike, or balloting of union members.
