Irish Rail dismisses staff's flag fears

IRISH Rail's cross-border staff are concerned that a new corporate logo, which features stylised triangles in the green, white and orange of the national flag, could leave them vulnerable because of tensions in the North.

Siptu has written to the company to outline the fears of workers.

However, Irish Rail has said trains will only be repainted with the new logo as part of the maintenance cycle.

It stressed that the Enterprise train service is a joint operation between North and South and that there were no plans to use the new logo on that service.
