The Limerick Junc connection issue is down to the fact the 10:00 from Dublin stops in Limerick Junction, there is only one platform, so only one train can stop, the 10:00 gives a direct connection to Waterford.

Both trains could stop but since both pass each other just outside Limerick Junc if the Dublin bound one stopped it would really slow things down and cause all kinds of other problems

There is a morning connection to Dublin off the Clonmel route which gets to Dublin by 10:20am. Remember connections work via Limerick Junc and Waterford, at this time of day its an hour faster go via Waterford

Second platform is planned to resolve the issue as is a 2 hourly service Limerick Junc Waterford
