I note IR have solved the problem of the DART in-carriage electronic maps being inaccurate.

the vast majority of Dart users are not ad-hoc passengers though, they're regular commuters and they'll notice the difference. I also suspect there's a disproportionate number of commuters from...

also extra 3-5 minutes running time on most Darts (why?), and the 0800 from Greystones is pushed back to 0804 making it useless for many commuters with a 9am start (this is the busiest train on the...

they've installed an extra bridge at GCD but it has gates on it and on the station side lands outside the ticket barriers - what is this for (a private access for Google similar to AIB's?)

the Dublin Bus airport service leaves from Busaras which is directly opposite Connolly. It's both fast (using the tunnel) and reasonably cheap.
