Surprisingly decent notice from Irish Rail, of course no one mentioned anything about a 8:15 train up until now

There is a train from Belfast as well http://www.translink.co.uk/specialoffers.asp#gaatyrone

Finally common sense prevails!

If ever ie had a chance to advertise this station this is it, you couldnt really get any nearer, coincidentally the nearest busstop for peopoe heading to croke park is outside drumcondra station!

Its a pity though they dont advertise for trains heading the other way, people would board them at pearse and connolly if they knew!
