Default Ticket Barriers at Kent

Given that ticket barriers have been installed at Kent (not yet in service) - can we assume that TVM's will be installed at Cobh, Rushbrooke, Carrigaloe, Fota & Glounthaune (there is already one at Little Island)

Without TVM's it makes the barriers a nonsense !

Why's that? With barriers at least people who didn't buy a ticket will have to get one to leave.

OK - so at present there is no TVM at Rushbrooke. 30/40 people board there on most morning peak trains. Without access to a tvm, how are they going to be in possession of a ticket to exit at Kent?

They'll buy one on the train if there is a ticket checker, or from an attendant on the gateline if not. Without the gates they would travel free.
