It is further from Tralee by 40 miles. The capacity pinch is between Mallow and Tralee not the mainline section in many cases
The goal of the 10 euro fare is to fill previously quiet trains, the 11am used to be quiet, now its busy. There are plans for a more advanced pricing system based on demand without any function of time, I have been briefed by IE on this and it is very fair compared to the time based fares in Europe, as in book 2 weeks ahead. Not sure when we will be seeing it deployed
In the past where we spotted errors in the pricing Irish Rail moved quickly to fix the issue
