Default Clontarf this morning

No lights on the stairs going down from the city-bound platform to the exit, also no lights even at the bottom of the stairs, very hard to see the stairs because of that. Really had to be careful with that, one person I saw stumble.

No staff there.

It was like that on Friday evening too...pitch dark because the light was off and no-one in the station.

I like how they have overcome the issue of people getting soaked too by flood water at the foot of the stairs is a wooden platform but you still had to "jump" a little to get over it. Heaven help an older or less mobile person.

If only they could repaint the carpark lines, fill in the massive holes and stop it from flooding!!

Station staffed today and still no lights, meanwhile the flood is back, even with the wooden plank there, just around the edges of the plank leading to the main building is a lot of water.

I complained to the guy in the ticket office last night - he said it was the first he had heard of it. I told him it had been broken since Friday.

Agreed - still like that this morning so i complained on the station issues section of the website..will ring them tomorrow if there is no update.

The flood is terrible and it seems the base of the platform they created has started to move and float away...could be interesting this evening after the rain today!

A website complaint will normally take at least a week. At the moment due to the chaos on the Sligo line, I'd expect they are getting a much higher volume of complaints than usual.

Like a swimming pool outside that piece of wood, which is now totally soaked through and changed colour and still no lights.
