Arrow Refunds

As no part of Irish Rail is on strike, nor are any of their agents or contractors a duty of care under EC1371 exists.

Force majeure cannot be used as an excuse, EU courts have ruled actions or third party events cannot be used to avoid responsibility.

You are entitled to alternative transport, refunds, compensation for delays, up to and including overnight accommodation if your journey is not possible to complete in a day.

Why is Cork affected? I did not think BE and IR shared the depot there?

What legal justification is there for refusing to cross a picket line when it is a separate company's staff who are in dispute?

none.

the unions flagged this two weeks ago when it last looked like there was going to be an all out strike in BE. therefore they have allowed this to happen. whatever small amount of public sympathy they may have hoped for in the next rail dispute has just been flushed down the pan.
