Connolly side changes repeat the well established depressing pattern of journey time downgrades on Sligo, Rosslare, Belfast and DART.
The main changes affect Sligo and Rosslare trains which are up to 16 minutes slower with several others being 8 or more minutes slower.
There are a few inconsequential changes to other services including many DART trains having an extra two minutes dropped into the schedule.
An oddity is the extension of the 1730 from Drogheda which now runs to Pearse. It is not clear what set now forms the 1840 to Drogheda although the 1718 from Maynooth now terminates in Connolly rather than Pearse.
The evening train from Rosslare no longer arrives in Connolly before the departure of either the 2050 to Belfast or 2052 to Drogheda.
