Default Tralee/Mallow/Dublin 'all seats taken'?

The 1130 & 1230 Ex Cork on Tue 29th June 'all seats taken' according to IE website - also No Premier seats - why?
And the 0915 ex Tralee to Mallow is 'all seats taken'.
My sister in Listowel now has to drive to Charleville to get the 1130 ex Cork to avoid having to stand Tralee to Mallow on the 0915.
Is there something special on resulting in these trains booked out?

There is no first class on the 11:30 and 12:30 Cork Dublin Monday-Thursday. Only 36 of 183 seats are available to book online

Not all trains Tralee - Mallow can be booked due to maintenance requirements, the 9:15 seems to be the one locked out.

With the exception of the 16:00 Dublin Cork on Fridays less than 50% of seats can booked, the rest are available on a first come first served basis

The symbol is a 'fully booked' one!
Overnight the 0915 from Tralee is no longer 'fully booked'!!!!!!
Just phoned my sister in Listowel to drive to Tralee and get her
seat on the 0915!
Obviously the IE online reservation system info is not to be trusted.
Surprised? No!

Many thanks for your help 'guys'.

Seamus

P.S. She got the 0915 and had no problem getting a seat.
