Hundreds of commuters walked along the Luas tracks yesterday as they made alternative transport arrangements.

Laura Breen, from Dundalk, only discovered the Luas was not operating when she left work in the evening.

"I will have to get the bus instead," she said. "I have no other choice, but I prefer the Luas.

"The workers are on a pretty good wage. There are others in a worse situation, so it's a bit indulgent - especially the strike on Paddy's Day."

Liz Hayes and Brendan Kavanagh, from Tullamore, had travelled up for a darts event in the 3Arena and were hoping to get the Luas from Connolly station.

"It's ridiculous," said Liz. "We are staying in a hotel and thought this would be the handiest way."
