Default GAA Special Trains

I am wondering does anybody know if there is going to be a special train from wexford for the football semi-final this sunday against tyrone?

Also are there specials for the Cork-Kerry replay on sunday? I hear there are going to be disruptions because of bridge renewal work this weekend.

There may be an extra train, however last time there was they simply cancelled another service to make it happen

Bridge works Cork route put back to weekend of the 5/6 Sept due to replay.

Would there not be an incentive to run the rosslare euro/wexford trains affected to and from Drumcondra on Sunday?

Make life easier for folk going to the game!

I think this special train is going to be operated either by the brand new 22k or a mk3 considering the volume of passengers that will be travelling for the match so there shouldn't be a shortage of the regular trains.

Be a 6 coach 2800 set as normal

Passenger demand on the specials out of Wexford has never come close to that you get in Cork or Tipperary
