If you think its bad try it in German and English in Berlin, where it is "please mind the gap between platform and train",
It's announced at every station between Kildare and Heuston including those which have straight platforms and were recently modernised or even recently built! Even Heuston! So by implicat5ion every station is sub-standard or maybe it's just easier to do it every station rather than those with curved platforms.
The Irish version has the 'seachan an bhearna' embedded between the station name and 'go luath'.
