These are not generally available in a consistent format


Cork local 1.32m
Dublin Area 32.77m

Total Nationwide 45.5m

So regional/intercity is 12m of which Dublin Cork is about 3m

Waterford approx 1.266m (+6% year on year). Belfast/Rosslare will likely be under the million mark.

As I understand it the way journeys are categorized can flatter one line over another. For example a Dublin-Thurles journey will be automatically counted and a Dublin-Cork line journey, even if the trip was taken on a Dublin-Limerick train. Pretty much every pairing on the line between Dublin and Cork sees that, except Dublin commuter journeys and trips between Mallow and Cork. Similarly, a generally poor performance of the Western Rail Corridor is flattered by the inclusion of Limerick-Ennis journeys regardless of the fact that line was opened long before it. There’s also no categorization for Cork-Kerry journeys, even though there are three direct trains a day.

No the 3.15 is Dublin-Cork line (excluding Kildare-Park West), if it included Limerick/Tralee it would mean less than 2,000 traveling each way daily.

12 million total approx
Cork 3.150*
Limerick 0.900*
Tralee 0.619*
Waterford 1.266*
Galway 1.800*
WRC 0.134*
Waterford Limerick J 0.035
Sligo 1.380
Westport 0.550
Rosslare 0.450
Belfast 1.100

Total 11.35 million

* Actual 2017 published

Make off numbers are largely based on:
Trakee (Mallow-Tralee)
Mayo (Athlone-Mayo)
Waterford (Athy-Waterford)
Galway (Portarlington-Athenry)
Sligo (Sligo-Maynooth)
Rosslare (Graystones-Rosslare)
Cork (Portlaoise-Cork)
Belfast (Border only?)
