Something along the lines of a Hesuton-Newbridge-Kildare-Monastervan-Poratrlington-Port Laoise-(Mountrath)-Ballybrophy-Templemore-Thurles.

Maybe 4 or 5 times a day after the new railcars have arrived.

If it was viable, it could reduce the need for Dublin-Cork and Dublin-Limerick services to stop at a lot of the intermediate stations, while providing a more reliable service for people on the route.
Thats how its done in the modern world. A great idea requiring only a small amount of new stock and opening up the route to many.
