Investigation Launched Into Luas Security Allegedly Wolf Whistling At Women


Luas chiefs have initiated an investigation after a complaint was raised about security staff reportedly wolf-whistling at women.

Transdev confirmed on Friday the 7th of February that the matter was being taken seriously and was “under investigation”.

A passenger got in touch with Luas representatives via social media on Friday. They claimed to have witnessed an incident at the O’Connell Street Lower stop in Dublin city centre.

According to The Irish Mirror, the man wrote: “Your security personnel whistling and cat-calling women… is not a good look, and certainly doesn’t instil a sense of security in female commuters using your service.

“Two male security guards and two male ticket inspectors (who briefly joined in) whistling at and cat-calling passing women across the road from the stop platform.”

It is believed that the operator of the Luas network, Transdev Ireland, will investigate CCTV footage as part of its probe into the alleged allegations.

A Luas spokesperson told the media outlet: “We take such allegations very seriously and we are conducting a formal investigation into this complaint. We are not in a position to comment further pending the outcome of the investigation.”
