Really very unusual for the 1713 to be an ICR, if it was it is nothing to do with the extension of the service to Newry.

Dundalk and Drogheda have a pretty rubbish service at this stage, it would make better sense to reorganise the 1711 ex Connolly and 1713 ex Pearse so that one operated as a fast limited stop service (Drogheda, Dundalk and Newry), possibly 4 x ICR instead of 8 x 2900 and a retimed 1711 service formed of 8 x 2900 and running non stop to Donabate. The extension of the 1713 to Newry was a missed opportunity in this regard.
