No extra DART services

23:55 to Dundalk seems to be there.

I would guess the overtime ban means no staff to man the gates on the Maynooth line

that is a complete joke

Last nights 23:10 pearse maynooth was held in ashtown for a few minutes because staff manning the gates didnt know the train was there. Someone had to knock on the door of the cabin.

The sooner the whole level crossing situation on the maynooth line is sorted the better!

Please note that many services on Cork-Dublin are fully reserved on Saturday.

Seats may be available on an unreserved, first-come, first-served basis.

This happened again this afternoon. The train driver had to hoot his horn on at least three occasions before the gates were lifted.
