At least that's what I think he said as we sat north of Connolly of 5-10 minutes. The train arrived into Pearse at 8.35 instead of 8.21.
Given the amount of people getting on; there obviously had...

The language is a bit extreme: "vast majority". It seems they are trying to downplay the situation rather than using their announcement to inform people of the cancellations.

What do you think Mark?

I think they must have stopped the 1840 ex Connolly in Donabate as a Northbound Commuter service has just stopped.

The 1750 was not noticeably busier. If anything it was quiet. There were free seats in the last carriage as far as connolly.
