Kerry GAA Chairman claims Irish Rail and unions are targeting Kerry fans travelling to football semi finals

The Chairman of Kerry GAA County Board is claiming Irish Rail is targeting Kerry fans planning on travelling to Dublin for the All Ireland Football semi finals. SIPTU and NBRU members of Irish Rail are conducting a 48 hour work stoppage over pay cuts on Sunday August 24th. Kerry senior and minor footballers are both playing their respective semi-finals in Croke Park on that date. Kerry GAA Crest As the teams usually travel by rail to Croke Park, the county board has had to sort alternative transport. There will be two further 24 hour work stoppages on the dates of the All-Ireland Hurling and Football finals. Pat O’Sullivan says the situation is very disappointing, but the county board will do whatever it can to get Kerry fans to Croke Park: [audio_player src=””]
