No mention of the fact that 2 , usually, busy Kildare (ex Heuston) locals on a saturday night (21.45 & 22. 45) are cancelled. Obviously IE think its covered by the equally busy BE sevices at 21.30 & 23.00.

What customer service dictated railway, issues a press release about cancellations and omits some services? What does it say about the particular rail operator? How many Kildare people will show up for the 2 cancelled trains and get stuck?

Answers on a postcard please.
