Twitter users react to Irish Rail Strike

Twitter users took to the site this morning to vent their frustration over the Irish Rail strike, which has inconvenienced over 100,000 commuters.

AA Roadwatch noted a marked increase in traffic on commuter routes this morning with the Naas Road, N4 from Lucan and Swords Road into Dublin city experiencing greater than normal volumes.

All Intercity, DART and commuter services were cancelled.

After a long-running row over pay cuts to save Irish Rail another €17 million on top of years of budget cuts, union members followed through with a two-day stoppage.

No talks are planned to attempt to break the deadlock after management implemented the divisive reductions in salaries yesterday.
