I've just completed a return through Fishguard, and it was amazing to see how close the station is to ship there, and that the current 2 trains a day actually coincide fully with the ship's arrivals and departures.

Meawhile at Rosslare a greater number of departures actually only connect with the evening departure and early morning arrival of the ships, and the new timetable will only improve these connections, but not create any others.

And then you have the irony that CIE actualy run Rosslare Harbour, as signified by the very outdated orange CIE symbol everywhere yet abandon the old connecting station leaving a complete eyesore, and have a 5.55pm departure that leaves just before the Stena boat gets in. Surely this state asset would be far better in private hands.
