Minister Donohoe welcomes resumption of Luas services for St. Patrick’s Day

16th March, 2016

The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, has this afternoon (Wednesday) welcomed the outcome reached at the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) which will see Luas services resume tomorrow.


Minister Donohoe said: ‘The recommencement of services tomorrow for our St. Patrick’s Day celebrations will be welcomed by commuters, tourists and businesses across the city’.


“Substantial progress has been reported. Obviously this has been achieved inside the terms of current contract with no additional cost to the taxpayer. The progress being made is through the industrial relations resolution machinery, which I have repeatedly said, is the appropriate mechanism through which disputes should be, and are, resolved.”
