Rail commuters could be hit with another train strike due to a row over driver training.

Drivers at Irish Rail will vote on possible strike action in the coming days.

They're holding the ballot because they say they're being forced to train staff without agreement.

Irish Rail says it's had to delay the introduction of 10 minute Darts and expansion of other commuters services as a result of the row.

The company says driver training must resume to allow services to grow to meet demand.
