After a very successful AGM, Platform 11 has been renamed. We are now known as "Rail Users Ireland". A rebranding process will be taking place over the coming months. The decision to rename the organisation was based on research and feedback amongst rail users. The new name clearly establishes what we are about and will be more appealing to the general public and media alike.
Our new committee now has six members and we welcome the three new additions of Colm O'Donaghue (Accessibility Officer), James Shields (Technical Officer) and Mark Hennessey (membership Officer). After a request from committee colleagues, Derek Wheeler will remain on as Communications & Media Officer to assist with the rebranding process and continue to represent the organisation. He will be assisted by Thomas Stamp.
