Thumbs down dundalk on new years day?

According to the notice on the Irish rail website it states that on new years day

Quote:
Drogheda/Dundalk: A Sunday service will operate to/from Drogheda/Dundalk.
However looking at the journey planner:

There is only one Dublin bound service- 09:20
There is three dundalk bound services - 20:22, 21:22 and the 00:18 connection off the last drogheda service

Looking at the journey planner on the irish rail website there are no enterprise services on new years day.

According to the translink website there will be two services connolly belfast on new years day 13:00 and 16:00 both ways both will call at dundalk according to the journey planner

Quote:
Thursday 1st January 2009 New Year’s Day - NI Railways will operate a Sunday Service; Enterprise will operate 1300, 1600 from Belfast Central & 1300, 1600 from Dublin Connolly only.
Pretty shoddy eh?

We have picked up a number of errors on the system already, there are no trains to/from Belfast on the system for the 1st.

There are several trains running tomorrow not shown on the online timetable, others shown in the online timetable but not shown on the printed notices

Ring Drogheda. (More likely to get the call answered there from my experience)

Irish Rail's response on the phone to a similar query yesterday

Quote:
you have to go with what is on the website
For Dublin Belfast, www.translink.co.uk has without question left Irish Rail for dust when it comes to cross border info

The 13:00 and 16:00 certainly will run
