They are trying to make demand for these as they had to cancel the last few services because of low demand. Hopefully this will work for them, it's a very good offer as all transport is included.

Of course no consideration for those in Ballybrophy,Templemore or Thurles.

We might like to avail of said services.

It's probably a straightforward calaculation.

Would the number of passengers to Cork and Limerick lost because of the extra time be outweighed by the number who used those services in those stations.

The only marginal surprise is that it would stop in Charleville rather than Thurles or Port Laoise. You'd expect those towns to provide more passengers.

Charleville is like the Shannon stopover, everything has to stop there.

Would imagine its for capacity and cost management, expect they want to keep it to a 3 piece operation. (190 people)
