I agree with 'dowlingm' except travelling via Athenry might result in they being late for the kick off

These services are run for commercial reasons only and not to satisfy people in the West. IE are getting 50 euro per passenger by going via Cork line and there is not a hope people would pay this to travel on the WRC to give people a show of a busy service.

taking life a little seriously there Jamie - 'twas said in jest.

That said the Galway line is 100mph in spots now so I'm not sure the timing issue would be quite so acute as it might have been previously. If I was looking to take the michael altogether I would have suggested a lawnmower down the Moate line to facilitate the Claremen going through the "back door" - arf arf
