There are no train services operating out of Colbert Station
MANAGEMENT at Iarnród Éireann have confirmed that no train services are operating in or out of Colbert Station this Friday morning as workers have not passed pickets placed by Bus Eireann workers.
The all-out strike action, which began at midnight, has created chaos for commuters locallly as there are no Expressway, city or county services running.
Private operators are not affected by the strike and school transport services operated by Bus Eireann are also operating as normal.
Barry Kenny of Iarnród Éireann says while there is no industrial dispute at the rail company, services to and from Colbert Station have been affected.
“We have no services out of Limerick at all that affects Limerick to Limerick Junction, it also affects Limerick to Ennis and Limerick to Galway,” he told Newstalk Breakfast.
