Default Saturday services fully booked

Everything from 1430 onwards on Saturday 15th from Cork-Heuston is fully booked. Is there something on? (And I've been out of the country for a week so I might be missing something stupidly obvious.)

Why would that cause services to be fully booked? Or are they just setting them to fully booked because they don't want to honour reservations or sell low fares for those services?

might be wrong and it might not neccessarily be the case this time but whenever this happens, Cork services normally only run every 2 hours?

Edit: Just checked it its not!

And lo and behold, they're reservable again.

However, €10/€20 fares are suspended during the works for some reason, which is disgraceful really; IÉ should be cutting, not hiking fares during periods of reduced service.
