Bus services across Limerick are returning to normal after the National Bus and Rail Workers Untion (NBRU) agreed to suspend its strike action for 48 hours pending talks at the Labour Relations Commission (LRC).

The strike action - over proposed cuts at Bus Eireann - began at midnight on Sunday and saw pickets placed at both Colbert Station and the Roxboro depot.

Thousands of people across Limerick were affected by the strike as there were no city services running on Sunday or yesterday. Expressway services and services to rural parts of County Limerick were also cancelled.

Bus Eireann management met with members of the NBRU at the LRC last night and further talks are due to begin this morning in an effort to resolve the dispute.
