Talks between pilots' union Fórsa and Ryanair are continuing at Dublin Airport, with the sides attempting to resolve differences over base transfers, promotions, leave and other issues.

Today is the last of the three days set aside for the talks, which are being facilitated by the former head of the Workplace Relations Commission, Kieran Mulvey.

Mr Mulvey had previously asked both sides to refrain from making any public comment while talks were ongoing.

Yesterday's talks ended at 11.40pm and resumed at 11.30am today.

The union negotiating team is made up of representatives of Ryanair pilots who are members of the Irish Airline Pilots’ Association (IALPA) and Fórsa officials, assisted by ICTU General Secretary Patricia King.

IALPA is a branch of Fórsa.

Around 100 of Ryanair's 350 Irish-based pilots held their fifth one-day strike last Friday.

They joined pilots in Belgium, Holland, Germany and Sweden in a series of strikes that forced the airline to cancel 396 of 2,400 flights, disrupting thousands of passengers.
