Result of Irish Rail ballot due later today

The result of a ballot of Irish Rail staff is due later.

We will know today workers have accepted a Labour Court pay recommendation.

Staff have been balloted on the ruling, which suggested a 7.5% pay increase over three years.

The ongoing dispute saw a series of 24-hour rail strikes last month.

The count is due to be completed by lunchtime, and union sources say they're expecting a positive result.
