The Cu Na Mara set has operated services to Limerick and Mayo in its time. Of course it should be noted Cu Na Mara name was used on trains from Westport back in the 1970's. The 7:10 is timetabled as a Mk3 set with first and catering, there are 13 such sets. Most people prefer the standard Mk3 over the Cu Na Mara coaches anyway.

From time to time the Cu Na Mara set will be withdrawn for maintenance reasons, however last week I understand it struck a cow and required some repairs. The vandals out west have been busy as well.

We have had very few comments on the lack of catering on a specific service, date/place/time. Dublin Cork, Dublin Belfast, Dublin Rosslare, Dublin Sligo, Dublin Tralee, Dublin Limerick and Dublin Waterford we can certainly confirm the trolley service is being provided and in most cases the service level appears to be better now than in the past in particular there are reports of breakfast served on Saturday mornings as well. Out west things seem rocky but we haven't got much information to work from
