As the drivers take industrial action over pay, the city has descended into post-apocalyptic chaos*. Here’s a taste of what’s going on.

*Well, almost.

1. This one commuter unaware of the madness

Ah god.

2. But they’re not the only one

3. And all the newbie cyclists like Bambi on ice

4. This rebellion against the street painters, as Gaeilge

5. The scenes outside the Heuston Luas stop

6. And the scenes inside the actual trams


7. Bus people and train people are having a rare meeting

It’s a confusing and distressing experience for both parties.

8. And bus people are having crises of public transport confidence

9. Some people are having trouble letting go of the old ways

10. But there are the beginnings of the development of a whole new society

Happy Hunger Games to you all. May the odds be ever in your favour.
