The fare for the 11km journey from Oranmore to Galway is €6, which seems exceedingly bad value.

Similar distances are:-

Portmarnock-Connolly (€2.50 Leap/€3.30 Cash)
Dún Laoghaire-Tara St (€2.50...

What about letting them run on Sunday on Waterford-Limerick Junction.

The line should be fit for it and there would be no interfering with regular traffic.

I presume they are planning to cut and cover in Swords. The route there certainly seems designed to keep costs down rather than be of use to commuters or businesses in the town.

Timing electrification to coincide with the end of life of the 201s would make sense.
