How do Iarnrod Eireann expect to gain with only three services from Gorey to Dublin 08.20,14.02,19.02 it doesn't make sense to me. Im not including the 5.55 & 6.45 services. A late morning and afternoon service. The length of time for the journey,the cost, less services!! Iarnrod Eireann could easily reduce the time on this line so easily I've experienced this so many times. It's just Greystones to Connolly which needs to be looked at,I'm not getting technical.
Kilcoole did have that 11.40 Connolly Gorey and 14.50 Gorey Connolly and on to Maybooth before why have these ceased. No demand for passengers why doesn't IE look into it. Sorry to drag on it's bizarre to me!!
The problem is that with the clockface 15 minute DART service, and in particular the half-hourly Greystones DART service it isn't possible to speed up the Rosslare services between Greystones and Connolly - the infrastructure just doesn't support it.
