I would have the same opinion but my opinion doesn't matter as I am only a customer. My impression would generally be that Irish Rail would much rather if they didn't have to bother with passengers at all.

Pure conjecture this but the reason would probably be something like that they finish up maintenance on a set in Drogheda on Friday evening and they have an extra set up there over the weekend so as to be able to get cracking on another first thing Monday morning. Also, given that reduction in use in Mk4s, there are might be extra 22Ks assigned to Cork runs on weekends when real first class isn't such a big deal.
