Strike a deal in pensions row

AS Aer Lingus and Siptu exchange threats in their ongoing pensions dispute, the threat of travel chaos hangs over St Patrick's weekend.

It's in everyone's interest that this row is brought to a satisfactory conclusion in the coming days so that Ireland's national festival isn't ruined.
