Default Dundalk Commuter - 29k or ICR

With the exception of the Enterprise services which use their own stock, is there any way to know whether a given Dundalk service will likely be operated by an ICR or a 29k?

Are there a list of which trains should be used for which departures, and it's only deviated from if there's an issue of some sort? Or will it be completely dependent on what's available on the day?

Apart from the Enterprise almost all of the limited Dundalk commuter service is operated by 29000 railcars, the only exception being the 0630 from Newry to Dublin and the 2335 from Pearse which are formed by 7-car ICRs.

Thanks for your reply. The 2335 from Pearse which you mention is shown Monday-Friday as having a change of train in Drogheda. In practice, is there a connection or does the same train run throughout? If there is, is the connection onto another ICR or a 29k, and is the connection guaranteed in the event of a delay?

23.35 is now a direct 7 days a week, this commenced 24 of Sep (Mon-Thur were added)

They have not updated PDFs and one assumes station timetables.
