http://www.irishrail.ie/cat_offers.jsp?i=4617

Quote:
Iarnród Éireann are providing a fantastic return service for Kerry fans travelling to see their county men battle it out with Cork in the Munster football Championship semi-final in Pairc Ui Chaoimh on Sunday 10th June, throw in at 14:00hrs.

This service will depart Casement station, Tralee at 11:15hrs serving Farranfore (11:27hrs), Killarney (11:46hrs), Rathmore (12:04hrs), Millstreet (12:12hrs), Banteer (12:22hrs), Mallow (12:55hrs) and arriving in Kent station, Cork at 13:20hrs. The return service will depart Kent station, Cork at 18:45hrs serving all stations as above and arriving in Casement station, Tralee at 21:02hrs.

There is a limited availability on this service so book now to avoid disappointment.

There looked to be extra services Cork / Cobh yesterday afternoon as well, but were unadvertised. Noted an extra 1330hrs Cork - Cobh & 1400hrs Cobh - Cork.

I doubt those would have been associated with the match though. Throw in was at 2 o'clock.

Was there a cruise liner in Cobh yesterday.

I was just thinking about this that if Cork City Council ever get around to building the long put off bridge by Pairc Ui Chaoimh, the walk from the station to PuC will be reduced from 40 minutes to about 15 minutes.

Yep, too late for throw-in!

Not sure if there was a liner in yesterday. Regardless, if it was a service it should have been advertised. Little Island is again displaying the 2009 timetable on the Cork-bound platform.

The funny thing with Cork Commuter is that as a model of railway operations, it's pretty good - reliable, rarely any significant delays etc.

But all the things that go on around it - Communications, TVMs in the stations, integrated ticketing, even something as simple as displaying the right timetable - seem to be completely missing.
