Is there any way to book discounted online fares without reserving a seat?

I wanted to book one of the 20 return fares from Cork to Killarney, but as far as a I could see, it was only available if you made a seat reservation. Problem is, the direct trains don't have seat reservations. So, it seems you get forced into making a change at Mallow just to secure the lower fare, even if the train time or connection doesn't suit.

In fact, from what I could see, it only worked between Cork and Mallow if that leg was on a Cork-Dublin train and not a Cork commuter train. That really restricts the possibilities of booking the fare.
