Irish Rail encouraged people to take a relaxing break but were hilariously ripped to shreds

So cutting.

IRISH RAIL KIND of knocked it out of the park with their special €19.16 seat sale that hit people in the patriotic feels.

But earlier this week on Facebook, it didn’t go quite so well for them.

They put up an innocent enough looking post about taking a relaxing break away

But, for some reason, the post got WAY more attention than normal.

And the comments underneath were absolutely gas

Like this story:

I was on a train from Cork to Belfast last week and there wasn’t space to swing an admittedly large cat.

They were drenched in sarcasm:

I’m travelling by reliable penny farthing in future.

They ranged from the indignant

Barely standing room – all we’re missing are a few goats, chickens and people on the roof.

To the anecdote-heavy

And when purchasing your ticket you neither get a hello or a nod. Just a puss.

Others kept it short and simple

 Lol no

You have to feel for the poor soul operating the account

But look, there were some nice ones in there too:

i have to tell it as is have traveled on the train a lot for the past few months have nothing but praise for staff on and off train best way to travel

The lesson here is that no matter what happens Irish people are going to take the piss – and it will be hilarious to watch.
