Making up 15 or the 23 minute delay by Mullingar is not normal especially as lot of train recovery from delays is from altered crossing patterns so a 3-6 minute schedule wait would be eliminated but the 05.45 has no crossings. Yes there is a few minutes for TSR's however that's at the end of journey. Some station stops may of been slightly faster but there is no way a train should be making up such time.
You might expect 5-6 minutes made up at most.
If IE produced this type schedule for direct Limerick/Galway services at Heuston myself and others would only be delighted.
