An end to the bitter, week-long rail dispute could be in sight, with 50 Cork-based drivers set to vote this morning on a deal agreed late last night by unions and Iarnród Éireann.
The breakthrough followed 20 hours of talks with the Labour Relations Commission.
Disruption to train services to and from Cork and Kerry will continue this morning until the drivers have voted on the agreement.
They have been refusing to work for almost a week as part of a row over their co-operation with the training of new drivers.
SIPTU says it is confident the drivers will accept the LRC proposals.
