While the fare increase is frustrating for anyone that has to pay it, it does make sense that the fares are all correctly based on the distance travelled.
Someone in IE clearly goofed many years ago in setting up the fares on the Maynooth line and Leixlip was put into the wrong fare zone for travel to/from the city centre, among many other station combinations.
Nope, the bus is much quicker (66X) with bus lanes and far cheaper fares especially with Leap.
