A national strike leaves Ireland without a bus service.

A one day strike by members of the National Busman's Union left commuters without transport. The NBU were seeking support of a pay claim increase of £3 per week and a five day forty hour week.

The strike impacted on education and businesses with some pupils missing school while retailers complained of low sales. Car owners stopped at bus stops to offer lifts to stranded members of the public.

The unusually high car use in Dublin meant the city still had traffic jams.

A coach due to leave the Imperial Hotel in Cork for Killarney was picketed. The driver ignored the picket and drove off but the picket followed in a car with a placard raised out the window.
