thank you Iarnród Eireann, I really enjoyed my journey because of one of the little things you did

a valid excuse...

I saw these lovely posters on the DART train into Dublin city recently. It’s probably one of the first times I’ve ever given Iarnród Eireann [the irish rail service] some credit. But if you must tell off when necessary, one should also applaud when required.

A standing ovation I say! They really are beautiful pictures; it gave me that cosy, sitting by the fire Christmas-ee [even though its freezing outside – feeling . And the text made me feel really good. It made me want to thank the lads. And so I say it publicly. Thank you.

Once again my photography skills aren’t the best – but if you’ve been on the DART recently, i’m sure you got the same feeling I did 😉

gentlemen? time to stand up & be counted

I took the DART into Dublin City recently. Been a while since I have. On the BUS home I took this picture and thought it would be a great poster to be put on all DART trains.

Reared with 4 sisters [& 3 brothers] I don’t wish to suggest a ‘National Peter Day’ of celebration but I feel compelled to say something.

I must have been one of very [very] few to stand and let a lady sit [age irrelevant] on a morning journey. The coach was full. One girl fainted a few seats down and still ended sat [slightly squashed] beside two ‘gentlemen’ who hunched hesitantly a little tighter on their seat whilst other people sat and read their newspaper. Two ladies did assist with water and such – agus bualadh bos – I applaud you.

More carriages – for sure. But it does not change the manner[ism]s of some who push and shove impolitely through their life. Is chivalry a characteristic of Irish history? Do we not perform random act of kindness at all? Or should we still blame Iarnród Éireann.

Maybe I just love going to work [incorrect by definition possibly hobby?!] and I’m slightly disillusioned believing it’s always great to see a smile….?
