Default Howth Junction Security

Have they stopped the 24hr security?

It needs to be urgently restored from 15.00 to closing especially at this time of year.

I've no idea if round the clock security has stopped, but I agree it's needed at a fairly busy interchange.

Any update from them?

This would indicate they are not stationed there.

I'm sure your information is sound but it also raises questions how effecitve it is when you read the below.

Security on platforms is whats required at this station.
