Default Earliest train to Cork Monday mornings?

Hi

Don't know if here is the best place to ask but I need to know when the earliest train to Cork leaves Dublin Monday mornings? May be working down in Cork for a few weeks but back in 2002 there used to be a train leaving round 5:30am, suppose that is long removed from the timetable?

Thanks

Fairly sure it was Mondays only

Current first is 7am, there is a slot and train id reserved for a 6am train but it has never been used, requires some changes to the morning Tralee - Dublin service to ensure the right number of trains end up in each place

It has always been an ~0530 from Cork to Dublin, not the other way around.

Before the hourly timetable came in there was indeed a Monday only early morning service from Dublin to Cork which left at 5.30

Indeed, it was the old Cravens of the 2150 Sunday night Heuston to Cork making their way back. I found that 2150 service highly useful on many occasions back when I was living in the true capital.
