I just drove Dun Laoghaire to Dublin City in record time, 40 mins early for an appointment. Am I missing something? #BusStrike.— Chris Donoghue (@chrisrdonoghue) September 8, 2016
The train is jammed. Put out regulars mingle with glum faced bus exiles. 'Mingle' as in pressed together like reluctant sardines. #BusStrike— Paul Page (@pagep195) September 8, 2016
