Apparently a truck milled into one of the railway bridges off Grand Canal St. this morning, so DART and train services have been
cancelled for the foreseeable future disrupted. The bridges along the stretch between Grand Canal Dock and Pearse are so low that I automatically duck going underneath them (admittedly I don't need to, but they are claustrophobically low) so what the truck driver was thinking I can only imagine.
And I'd imagine it was something along the lines of "Sure fuck it, it'll be grand".
The newsreader read the story and then continued with undisguised glee to say that the spokesman for Iarnród Éireann was "very angry". He wasn't joking. "The bridges around the Grand Canal Dock area are visibly very low," he spluttered into his soundbite. "It takes a peculiar type of moron not to be aware of that."
