Default [07/07/2013]-Bus Transfers for Limerick, Cork and Tralee services

Due to fire damage to signaling equipment at Limerick Junction bus transfers are in operation between Charleville & Thurles & Limerick & Thurles. 08.20 Cork-Dublin and 08.25 Limerick to Dublin have both terminated at Thurles and will operate as bus transfer to Dublin.

Bus transfers expected to operate for some time.

Does that mean a train leaves at 1500, 1600 or 1530, or some other time? They could stand to make these updates much clearer.

16.00 but everything was just late as it was more likely a case of a departure whenever an inbound train arrives.

pricewatch chap on ray darcy made the very interesting point that refund vouchers are not refunds at all. for example you may be only using the train one way or are tourists ect. the only refund that is a true refund is cash.

also a point made was that IE knew people were going to be savagely delayed but put them on their merry way anyway instead of organising transfers.
