Ireland V New Zealand All Blacks Travel Arrangements, 15th November by Corporate & E-Marketing

Rugby International
Ireland V New Zealand
Croke Park

Iarnród Éireann are expecting a significant number of Rugby supporters to travel by train to Dublin for the Ireland V All Blacks Rugby International on Saturday 15th of November.

To accommodate Rugby supporters travelling to and from Dublin to see the Ireland V All Blacks in Croke Park on Saturday the 15th of November, Iarnród Éireann have provided additional services after the match for Cork, Limerick and Galway customers.

Supporters have the flexibility to travel outward on any available train and return on one of the additional train services to Cork, Galway and Limerick.

Cork to Dublin (Heuston Station) 08.20
Dublin (Heuston Station) to Cork 20.30
Dublin (Heuston Station) to Limerick 20.30
Dublin (Heuston Station) to Galway 20.50

Iarnród Éireann advise that there is limited capacity on these return trains from Dublin and are strongly advising supporters to book their travel in advance to avoid disappointment on the day. It is expected that these return services will be sold out before the weekend.

Train tickets are now available online - click here to book now

Does this mean that the entire train is sold out or only the reservable seats are sold out?

Was at the game yesterday

What really surprised me was while walking down the side of Parnell Sq to O'Connell Street after the match, a 90 bus flew past fully loaded heading for Heuston

Nice move by DB and IE but why no tell the rest of the world? Or will there be trouble if the DoT read this?
