Default Destinations correct but you can't see it

After several letters irish Rail finally started to deal with the destination display issue

Of course thats great if you could see the destination!

To-day Tuesday 17th July train announcements on lunch time Dart going to Howth were made for one going South! E.G. On leaving Tara for Connolly the onboard announcement stated next station was Lansdowne Road! The front of train destination board was correct - going to Howth.
Pity all the non Dubs - Irish and Foreigners - travelling trying to get their bearings.
It's the old 'mystery train' back again folks!

The 1335 to Rosslare (from Connolly) to-day Tuesday 17th July was going to Maynooth if one was to believe the Destination Board at Front and Rear of train!!!!!

Is the driver responsible for ensuring the correct destination is indicated?
If not who is?
