Important Travel Information For Fans Going To Ireland Vs Wales Tonight

Chaos is general over the country today as a result of the all-out Bus Eireann strike, which came into effect overnight. Despite the fact that Iarnród Éireann are not a party in this dispute, a number of Iarnród Éireann employees share a workspace with Bus Eireann drivers, so some employees of the former have picketed in solidarity.

As a result, a number of train services have been cancelled at short-notice. Via their website, Iarnród Éireann confirmed that would be limited services across the following lines:

Dublin/Cork; Dublin/Galway; Dublin/Sligo; Dublin/Waterford; Dublin/Rosslare; Dublin/Limerick Junction

The special Ireland Wales trains laid on for tonight's World Cup qualifier could "not be guaranteed", per Iarnród Eireann this morning. In the last few moments, however, they have confirmed that the match special trains from Heuston to Cork and from Heuston to Galway WILL operate.
