There are approximately 900 Cork-Dublin and Dublin-Cork intercity trains per month. A 12 percentage point deterioration in punctuality means about 100 extra trains being late. IE have a case to answer here.
Remember after engineering works there is usually a temporary speed restriction for 4-7 days in many cases.

There are currently 4 TSR on Heuston-Cork, 2 on Cork-Heuston and they have been on rolling basis (different areas) for a few weeks now. Westport/Galway have had the same in recent weeks.

You are correct the performance is particularly bad and yes something needs to be done to address it.
