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.
