They seem to think that if they throw more money at it it will solve the problem. The frequency of trains need to be increased and the time it takes to cover the journey needs to be addressed. Ticket prices are also up Newry to Dublin 1st class return is now £52 and a standard day return is now £22. Considering you can get the bus to Dublin £12 return and its a 24 hour service now and every bit as quick as the train
