In Ireland, a standard fare is issued to a passenger on Dublin Bus and Luas services who fails to present a valid ticket on request. It is similar to penalty fares as issued in the UK.
A standard fare on Dublin Bus is €50. On Luas, it is €45. While these fares are far in excess of the maximum cash fares (€6 on Dublin Bus, €4 on Luas), legally they are not fines. However, any person who fails to pay a standard fare within a defined time (usually 21 days) after incurring it is liable to prosecution.

Thou pure impiety and impious purity!”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
