Default New Timetable from 9 September.

07.10 ex Waterford scheduled to take 5 minutes longer with extra stop at Muine Bheag. A few months ago they were lobbied to stop the train so clearly a TD/Councillor have gotten onto them to made it happen. They may as well add Thomastown and Kilkenny next because its guaranteed to happen now. The change is now live.

They confirmed it a few months ago. Getting over 700 names is great yet only 130 used it daily.

Now if it was the 06.15 ex Cork wonder how accommodating they would be...

Instead of fixing schedules they are adding an extra minute or two on lots of services as well as the 10 minute DART from 9/9.

If we had a transport minister who was focused on strategic issues such as developing fast competitive services to cities scheduled for major development such as Waterford (see Building Ireland) then this nonsense wold not be allowed. This is another example of Sandyford Garda station syndrome.

I doubt if the Bagnealstown stop will deliver even in political terms.

Most Sligo trains, inbound and outbound will serve drumcondra in the new timetable .

Last departure from Connolly will be at 19.15

Drumcondra? Is Bertie making a comeback?

I had a look for the timetable on the Irish Rail site but couldn't find it. Is it anywhere online? It seems to be loaded in the journey planner but the Longford commuter trains aren't appearing.

Drumcondra seems like an odd extra stop. Broombridge would seem like a more obvious choice for an extra stop with the Luas there now.

Only the Sligo intercitys are online ATM

It's strange alright , I would have thought that Broombridge would be a better option . The cynic in me says it's linked to PPT.

Greystones to connolly intercity service now takes an hour but is faster south of greystones to make up for the time.
2 morning trains now also call at grand canal dock.
