Maybe if Irish Rail let people know they existed, then demand might increase: there might even be enough to justify more than the present skeleton service.
Of course if there were a closure announcement then air would be full of cries from local politicians about how the town would die if the line were to close.
Thatís more a failing of the hotel letís be honest. Iíd expect a hotel to know local public transport options. Information on the service (limited in nature as the service is) is hardly hidden away on the IE website.
Letís be honest though, it reflects the reality that we are a car-focussed country.
