Many Rosslare trains are almost unchanged in terms of overall times. Some are slower: is this an attempt to iron out some punctuality problems?
What is truly disgraceful is that despite the online bookings being available post December 9th, the Irish Rail website says you can't book beyond Dec 9th (you get this if you click on Timetables on the home page). In fact the journey planner does allow such bookings. This is the situation at 5pm on today November 20.
Does the right hand know what the left hand is doing in the crazy world of the Irish Rail website?
