Cork is properly included, but Limerick-Waterford and the Nenagh line aren't. There are only obligations to report punctuality, and no targets. Is there a commitment to impose targets once the NTA...

Afaik Dun Laoghaire and Bray are on the NI ticketing machines. Most staff don't know this however.

Unlike from the Republic, it is not possible to issue a ticket from N Ireland to any IE station.

Heaven forbid, you could even sell through tickets.

Or did they not...
