B901: 12:00 Maynooth Connolly likely to run

There are trains penciled for 12:00, 13:00 and 14:00. Depending on throw in one or more runs

Returns are 17:10, 17:50 and 18:10 again which run is down to the throw in, expect only 1 to run this weekend

great in theory.

Last week the 1300 from Maynooth special never turned up, for at 13.10 we were told by the station bloke that it was still in Connolly. Got the 1335, which is too late for the 14.00 throw in.

kick off.....
