That poster is really special, even for Irish Rail.

I assume they also lost the use of their keyboards spacebar when writing in Irish?

Maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't, but the issue here is Irish rail didn't even bother to try and reassure people which is unforgivable for a public service.

So clearly nothing was learnt from the management of the recent DART derailment.

No communication = panic = people doing stupid things.

No doubt Irish rail will forget the first two parts of that...

Irish Rail have said to use the journey planner going forward as there is no PDF timetable.

Is there not to be a printed DART and Commuter timetable anymore?

What is normal procedure when points fail?

How are they fixed, does someone have to be sent from engineering to fix them or is there something else that can be done?
