This morning.

In the meantime, Luas trips from Sandyford to Stephens Green take an hour and a half, despite that being the actual route for years.

How does it take 2 hours to get a tow truck to a bus on Dawson street? Not a rhetorical question.


Yesterday, male Luas riders were blamed for spreading foul bodily odours throughout Green and Red Line trams in the current heatwave.

But what about the mouth breathing women?

Conor writes:

I’m more concerned about the people who don’t brush their teeth and insist on breathing through their mouth instead of their nose.

I actually got up and moved seat when a woman and her friend whose conversation not only nearly burst my eardrums, also nearly knocked me out with the nauseating smell from her unclean mouth.

Also women putting on a tonne of body spray is only creating a different problem. A plume of different artificial smells each so different from the next.

As someone with a sensitive nose this usually makes me sneeze.

Yesterday: Hum ON The LUAS

RTE reports:

The website of Dublin’s tram service is offline with a message claiming it has been hacked.

Users trying to access luas.ie are seeing a message which threatens to “publish all data and send emails to your users” unless “1 bitcoin” is paid in five days.

One bitcoin is currently valued at €3,385.

Luas said on Twitter that it has technicians working on the issue and travel updates will be made on its Twitter account.
