The coaches are not numbered in any visible way and also not ordered. I traveled on the Enterprise for the first time two weeks ago. I had a reservation in coach 4. Since nothing was labeled, I just...

Why is it that when they finally go for clockface (good), IE have to make it so incredibly inflexible (bad)? S-Bahn lines in Germany (pretty much the equivalent of the DART here) are clockface with...

While I agree the Abbey St/O'Connell St junction is rather unfortunate and dangerous, I do think your theory fits the accident: The tram was clearly derailed, its front dragged on quite a distance in...

It could have been so many things - even a signal misfunction (green for the bus, go-ahead for the luas) or a brake failure or, or, or... No point in speculating right now. And certainly no point in...

O'Connell St southbound is closed at Parnell St. That's the route I came walking and guards were diverting traffic there.

Here's a picture I shot some half an hour ago on my way to work.

Edit: Also, from looking at it on the ground, I do not think the driver thought he would "fit through". In that case, the Luas would...

Running the Luas at daytime prices may actually have the nice knock-on effect for Veolia of more people switching from buses to the tram. So, Veolia would not just get reimbursed for the loss due to...

Rude drunks are certainly a huge problem in Ireland, but other places have the same issue and manage to deal with it.

Irish drinking "culture" is similar to that in Britain and they somehow manage...

As long as the main competition to Night Luas is an equally overpriced Nightlink, it makes sense passengers accept the €4 tickets. It would be great if both went down in price but somehow, I don't...
