I maybe walk-on UK fares are so outrageously high anything looks like a bargain!
Not really, it gives other towns and cities nearby an unfair advantage. In other stations like Waterford the walk on fare is less than €30. True Thurles has a better train service than Waterford but this is a city with a comprehensive bus services. Thurles and Templemore aren't served by Bus Éireann so people without cars have no choice but to pay it. The day saver fares that used to be only €37 return if bought before 11am are gone too.
