NEWS IN BRIEF: Christmas has come early in Limerick as the bicycle station outside Colbert Train Station is due to be reopened after it has been out of action for years.
The station had been due to be opened at least as early as the end of 2017.
The delay in opening the station is just one part of complaints about the delay in the level of service of the bicycle share in Limerick, Cork and Galway.

After many months of me placing pressure on @TFIupdates to open the bike scheme station at Colbert Station today is the first day in 3 years we’ve seen some action! Bike station will open either this evening or in the next week @LimerickCouncil 🚴♀️ pic.twitter.com/rKseZq5D3G

Had a busy morning, made all the busier by having to walk from Pery Square to Colbert Train Station as Bike station here has remained unopened for two years. An Roher Nua claims it has spent 2 years sourcing parts for the scheme. Why has their contract been renewed @TFIupdates? pic.twitter.com/T3DjsO2iOi
