Do you rely on Dublin Bus as your method of daily transport?

So this strike is gonna fuck us both over! Unreal!

The strike will stop all operations on Thursday 8th, Friday 9th, Thursday 15th, Friday 16th September, Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th of September.

But will a strike achieve this or wreak havoc on our city? We shall see...
