Train delay sets the tone before delegates rail against conference
THINGS in the Labour Party rarely run smoothly and it was a case of "Heuston, we have a problem" for the hundreds of delegates, ministers and journalists who boarded the 11am Killarney-bound train for the 66th Labour National Conference.
The heaving train was full to capacity and was delayed in Dublin due to a "technical fault". Not a great start.
But it was when delegates had to change trains at Mallow that the real chaos kicked off.
