Aer Arrann had some great ads today telling people to skip the Bus + Train out of Heuston this weekend and take the plane to Cork, Galway and Knock.

Fares at 30 one way*.





* I'm sure finding flights at these prices on a Friday evening are difficult.

Despite the notice sounding like this is a huge deal which will bring the KRP closer to finish it turns out its a replacement of 2 crossovers in Sallins and maybe a crossover in Hazelhatch
