Dart Fares Calculator Error

The journey Dublin Pearse to Salthill & Monkstown does not seem right to me on the fares calculator - it's coming up with a €3.72 fare adult leap card fare.

Apologies, in fact looks like there's an hourly service, Belfast to Coleraine (not every 30 minutes as I first thought) with a connecting service to Portrush which makes a single line possible.

Flooding Between Salthill & Monkstown and Seapoint

The Dart lines were under water again today after being battered by crashing waves at high tide.

I assume this does not unsettle the line once the water has drained off?

I have to say that I think it is a bad idea too for Ireland.

It shouldn't take any longer than 5 years to plan for and electrify a line. The lifespan of a train is significantly longer.

About 40-50 odd people I'd say used the service - more than I expected.

It was €40 for Dublin Bus, and I think that was 4 full days and 2 part days of strike action.

€4 a day certainly does not recover actual costs paid for alternative means of transport.
