Default Fare Increases 1st Nov 2013

Not sure if I count as a monthly (Nov '13 price change) or a cash ticket (Dec '13 price change), i'm a student monthly that pays cash from Dundalk but I couldn't see price change on the ticket machines this morning for my November monthly ticket. I was quite happy to get another month's leeway on price increase. Or have I missed something here? Like a fool I asked the IE lads hanging around so they've probably got onto the head office. Anyone else experience this?

Default Silly Question

So does that mean i'm still ok for the month of November, i've avoided the price increase for this month? Is that how it works? sorry for silly questions, thanks for reply.

The ticket is valid, no question there

Weekly tickets run Sunday to Saturday so the change normally goes through on the Sunday.

While Irish Rail has approval for the increase from Nov 1st the actual date of implementation is their choice

You can buy a single or return ticket up to 3 months in advance from the booking office
