I can't replicate that problem. Can you check again, and if you still get the problem, please tell us what dates you checked.

(Pedantic note: there's no 0530 service )

No problems here, can even get a 10 euro on the 5:05 tomorrow

Specific date and train combination would be helpful

1. Booking system is working fine

2. From October 18th onwards these trains are blocked on the system as is the 17:00 Dublin Cork

Why? I'm guessing there is a timetable change effecting those trains. Can't say any more currently.

The vast vast majority of bookings are made less than 48 hours ahead so its not really a problem if the block is cleared by Friday this week. Demand based ticketing is not in force Dublin Cork currently so not loss.
