But the NTA was quite clear.

If I cannot use a Leapcard for my Cork/Cobh journey on Friday then the ticke price must revert to the 2013 price?

They said 'products', so applies to monthly/annual only

Quote:
Approved increases for Iarnród Éireann’s Cork/Cobh/Midleton products are on the basis that these will be made available on the Leap card format by 1st August 2014. If that date is not achieved, and if the Authority does not approve the reasons for the missed deadline, then these newly approved fares are to revert to their rates prior to 1st December 2013.

Find it hard to credit this rebate has to involve vouchers. There was no other way to do this?

I can understand that there are complications on the integrated Bus Eireann tickets, but why the delay with ePurse?

So how are they validating the passes?

I assume the barriers in Kent Station are Leap enabled?
