They tend to only be known a few days to a week before hand.

Are we a fan?

I've had the classic

"No extra trains, last train is 23:30......"

Curious how I was wedged into a DART at 00:15 on my way home that night

An extra service departing Cork at 10,00 has being added for 22 June serving Mallow, Charleville, Limerick J (no Limerick connection) and arriving in Heuston at 12.45. Extra capacity has being added to the 13.00 on both Friday and Saturday from waterford with limited number of seats left on the 07.40 both days. Still don't understand why there is no return after the concerts as there clearly is demand there.

I understand there is also a 1045 special from Limerick to Heuston on both the 22nd and 23rd.

There was a 10.55 on Friday and 10.40 on Saturday between Galway-Heuston as a relief for 11.05 from Galway both were operated by a 2800.

There was a 09.20 on Friday and Saturday as a relief for the 07.15 from Westport and 13.15 (6 car) from Westport was so overcrowed some passengers had to be bused to Dublin and according to IRN its not the first time that Westport passengers have had to take buses because of lack of capacity.
