Default New Timetable - Changes in the Cork Area

The new timetable sees major cutbacks on commuter services to Mallow. Perhaps that's no great surprise considering Mallow is well served by InterCity traffic and there's no sign of the new stations at Blarney and Kilbarry opening any time soon; there's little point in running a railcar just between Cork and Mallow.

Midleton is largely unchanged, although there are some changes to the Sunday timetable that make it more clockface.

Cobh sees extra services on a weekday and a Sunday, but fewer on a Saturday.

It will no longer be possible to travel direct from Mallow to Cobh as all services will now require a change in Cork.

A minor quibble would be that the scrapping of the 18:55 Cork-Mallow means early-evening passengers to Killarney are faced with a long layover in Mallow.

Also, by moving the 08:25 Cobh-Cork to 08:30, it gets into Cork a bit on the late side for those with 9am start.

Anyway, these are the changes from the Cork end, with corresponding changes to the return trains
