That sounds like a really useful service. Let's hope it does well as we could do with some more connections like this. Irish Rail should be paying them a couple of euro for each passenger they deliver onto the train.

Indeed let us hope so. This is a service IÉ could promote too via their social media & website.

I suspect the vast majority of passengers delivered will deliver nothing to Irish Rail in terms of fares so paying an operator for a privilege of a bus service may well cost IE.
