Same here. That's been going on since before the automatic checks in Heuston though. They wait until after the last stop before Heuston to do a sweep cause they're lazy. I'd say it's easy to get from...

Surely using "Seat reserved" should have been the way to do it all along. Personally I wouldn't be overjoyed sitting there with my name displayed overhead for all to see. I'm not paranoid, honest!

It's not as bad as completely wrong displays.

This evening in Heuston for example. The departures board said the 18:05 to Portlaoise was on platform 4, where a train was sitting with Kildare...

Non-italicised will make it look like an extension of the place name. That's going to be very confusing for tourists driving around Ireland. Where is Kildare Cill Dara anyway?!

Does this also apply...

Is it just the car parking that's rumoured to be increasing? Isn't this the time of year when they hike the actual train fares by some disproportionate amount too?

(Please tell me that at a time...

Daylight savings time

Since the clocks went back over two weeks ago, I have not been on one train which has been on time. I've been keeping a list of departure / arrival times for the month so far. It's laughable when...

The driver on today's 17:25 Dublin to Limerick made an announcement to tell people not to be taking up seats with bags - not that there was anyone standing, but fair play to him anyway.

Has something changed with the software? Up to yesterday my monthly ticket was working fine, but today the gates didn't want to know - going in or out of Heuston. Ticket does not have City Centre...

Yep, was waiting on that train too. They called the platform number at 18:36, there was a mad scramble by everyone and it departed at 18:39.

Much the same thing happened with today's 18:05 to...

Can you imagine the exit gates...
