Similarly, a generally poor performance of the Western Rail Corridor is flattered by the inclusion of Limerick-Ennis journeys regardless of the fact that line was opened long before it. There’s also no categorization for Cork-Kerry journeys, even though there are three direct trains a day.
No the 3.15 is Dublin-Cork line (excluding Kildare-Park West), if it included Limerick/Tralee it would mean less than 2,000 traveling each way daily.

12 million total approx
Cork 3.150*
Limerick 0.900*
Tralee 0.619*

Sligo 1.380
Westport 0.550

Belfast 1.100

Total 11.35 million

* Actual 2017 published

Make off numbers are largely based on:
