An unofficial strike by Bus Éireann drivers is severely affecting bus services in Limerick today.

The 'wildcat' strike has resulted in short notice delays and major service cancellations to services in the city.

Bus Éireann says the issue only arose yesterday.

It says there is the potential for "sudden delays and cancellations" throughout the day.

The bus company is apologising to customers and says it has been encouraging the use of dispute resolution to try and settle the issue.

A spokesperson for Bus Éireann said: "Unofficial action by a number of Bus Éireann drivers in Limerick city is causing major disruption to Limerick-based services today Tuesday, 13 October 2020.

"Bus Éireann very much regrets and is deeply concerned by the impact of this action on customers including short notice delays and major service cancellations.

"Bus Éireann has, since the issue arose yesterday, been urging the use of recognised and agreed dispute resolution mechanisms and continues to make these available."

Updates on services can be found on the Bus Éireann website.
