Anyone know if these will serve Midleton station? Or should I just be grateful that we have a train station (and currently no train) from Midleton now
I am aware that John Quirke Coaches started a Midleton Town Service towards the end of last year. I guess it's still running. I have only been through Midleton once so don't know if it would go anywhere near the station. Certainly in a sizeable town such as Midleton is one or more bus links to the station is desirable. Sorry I don't have more info than this.

I have not seen that bus in a couple of months. So not sure if that service is withdrawn. I never saw many people on it.

Just noticed that the irishrail.ie journey planner has Midleton & Carrigtwohill

Noticed as well that the line speed for the Midleton branch is 60mph
