Battle of Broadstone

How reassuring it is to discover that two State transport bodies are competing like rival street gangs for the privilege of delivering a decent service to the people of Dublin and beyond.
So vigorous is the rivalry between Iarnrod Eireann and Luas that they have engaged in a bitter turf war with good, old-fashioned northside versus southside connotations.
Apparently Iarnrod Eireann has doggedly refused to allow officials of the Railway Procurement Agency, the people who run Luas, to carry out a survey at the old Broadstone railway station.
