Default Nenagh Commuter Service - 2007 Timetable

I have always thought that the Limerick to Nenagh line has great potential as a commuter route if the proper service was placed on it. For some reason my PDF reader is not working and I cannot see if the promised 2007 commuter service for the line was actually implemented in the new timetable.

Does anybody know?

There is no point bothering the journey is so slow no one would use it

So that press release by IRN last year claiming they scored a commuter service on the line for 2007 was just Walter Mitty-ism.

But sure God love them, they do their best the poor dears.


"Please Mister IE Manager Man...Giz Us a Commuter Service for Nenagh...It's for Kyoto, Regional Development and to Save Lives on the Roads. Gis Us Railfreight as Well so no more People Killed by HGVs...this Really Upsets us Deeply...Nothing to Do with Getting Irish Taxpayers to Fund Our Hobby...HONEST!!!!"


It's a shame really because in any other country in the Europe that branch would have 10 trains a day in either direction at least.

If they ran a railcar from Limerick to Nenagh and re-opened the old spur to Birr with some sort of Delta junction at Nenagh then maybe the government could sort out 2 problems (aparently nobody wants to decentralise to Birr because it is so Isolated) It would still be magnificently slow.

They are building an eco village in Cloughjordan in the next few years, which you would think would increase rail usage.

But then I amn't an engineer/economist/etc.
