General indication is if the standard seating starts in coach C.

Currently the following are ICR operated services:
Mon-Sat
ex Dublin 08.00*/10.00/12.00/14.00*/19.00**/21.00
ex Cork 05.50/06.15/11.20*/13.20/15.20/17.20*
Sun
ex Dublin 18.00/21.00

* - Mark IV on Fri & Sat
** - ICR on Fri Only

Am I right in thinking that the availability of First Class on a train indicates that it's a MKIV

No, premier class is made available on 08.00,10.00,12.00,14.00. Your method used to be pretty accurate pre PPT services where it was more 3/4 car sets on most services.

Only indicators are:
* First Class on Mark IV is 2 and 4 seats as opposed to 4 and 4
* Coach B will not shoe online for Mark IV services
* Coach C indicates Mark IV for standard reservations
