Its 3 trains

From Dublin
15:25
16:25
17:25

From Limerick
5:35
6:55
7:35

Sunday which is the busiest day of the week has 6 trains direct each way. The direct trains are up to 20 minutes slower than the change at Limerick Junction.

We are concerned, however we know passenger numbers on some of the withdrawn trains were woeful, so a balance is required as empty trains mean higher fares long term. Cork passengers are the real losers as those trains have to make numerous extra stops. I doubt a case can be made for the 9:25 or 11:25 but the removal of the 13:25 from Dublin is causing some concern as it was full on a Friday.

If there is a specific train you think should not have been withdrawn and can testify to it having a significant number of passengers let us know.
