Some withdrawals, due to "low demand" - http://www.irishrail.ie/cat_news.jsp?i=4758&p=116&n=237 .


and a lot of positives in the timetable as well. Far and balanced reporting?


- Hourly all stations service to Portlaoise allowing Intercity services to Cork, Galway / Westport and Waterford to operate non-stop to/from the last Commuter Station (Kildare, Portarlington or Portlaoise).


- Additional services to/from Galway and Westport routes.


- faster journey times on all Intercity routes to and from Heuston averaging 10-15 minutes, but by up to 25 minutes in some cases which is achieved by the express running on the mainline with the Commuter service sweeping the road, 100mph running on certain sections between Portarlington and Athlone / Cherryville Jct to Carlow. Plus more 100mph sections on the Cork route.

There is actually three down and four up direct services to/from Limerick. Trivia: Can anybody guess how the unbalanced fourth service is resourced???


The one withdrawn was the 0505 Limerick - Heuston via Nenagh which was the biggest carrier of fresh air until it hit the Commuter belt at Portlaoise.
