Default lying display in Connolly

Went into Connoly at about 3:05 today. on the main display the next train to Rush and Lusk was at 16:22

SO I wandered over to Abbey st and go the bus.
as I arrived at rush and lusk train station on the 33, doesn't a train pull in at the same time.

got bak home and checked the timetable and yep, there's a train from Connolly at 15:49.
useless incompetent shower agin.

I noticed there was no large poster timetable up of the drogheda service leaving Connolly, but there are ones for Limerick, Wesport etc...

Yeah, the big display is definitely a bit dodgy. I have a feeling it isn't connected to the same computer as the platform displays and TV screens. There's a TV screen over the area where the ticket checkers used to be, and I would definitely always check that in preference to the big display.

Don't trust its clock either.

The platform 4 clock is allways about two minutes slower, and thats pretty much in line with the on platform information screens, stupid jumbotron!!
