A woman who got delayed travelling from Galway to Kerry has thanked a member of Irish Rail staff who helped her get home.
Cara Ní Chofaigh and her two friends were heading home for Christmas, when delays in Limerick meant they would miss their connecting trains.
An Irish Rail worker then volunteered to drive them the rest of the way.
Cara told Newstalk Breakfast they were not sure what to do at first.
"We were in Limerick Colbert [station] and we were sitting on the train waiting, waiting, waiting," she said.
"We kept getting announcements: 'Just five more minutes, just the odd signalling issue'.
"Eventually an inspector came up the train and he said we were Killarney-bound.
"He said there was no way we were making our connecting trains in Limerick Junction and Mallow to make it down to Kerry on time because there were signalling issues in Limerick."
'Tired and a little bit upset'
She said plans were being put in place to bus them.
"They were sending us on buses to Tralee, and they wanted to get us taxis from Tralee to Killarney - we weren't going to land until nearly 1am," she said.
"The three of us were just tired and everything, and a little bit upset.
"There was four employees standing there, and one of them was like 'Right, I'll drive them down to Killarney in the company car'".
She said one of her friends jumped at the offer straight away.
"We were kind of like 'Wait, seriously?' and then one of the girls was like 'Yeah that'd be great' and took him up on it immediately," she said.
"We were in the car for the bones of an hour and a half, two hours down, and then he had the journey back up to Limerick after that.
"His name was Tony... and we didn't get anymore information than that.
"He was so good, and even all the way down he was chatting away to us.
"He didn't even pay any heed to the fact that he was doing a three/four hour round trip - he was just like 'Ah yeah, it's part of the job'", she added.
