The half hourly DART service to Greystones means that there is only a ten minute window on the single track between Bray and Greystones every 30 minutes. This window can accommodate either a southbound or northbound Rosslare service. The ten minute window occurs immediately after the arrival of each southbound DART train at Greystones - hence the scheduling of Rosslare services behind Greystones DART services.
The only way around this mess is to either reduce DART frequency between Bray and Greystones or introduce overtaking facilities at Dun Laoghaire and/or Bray
