Default Easter Timetable Details

No notice on the IE site but the following should be noted

Thursday - Normal service except the 16:00 to Sligo and 16:15 to Ballina will run as if it was Friday

Friday/Saturday - Normal Saturday service, note bus transfers after 8pm all trains Heuston, 16:00 to Sligo/16:15 to Ballina cancelled

Monday - Weekday like intercity timetable but Sunday suburban timetable though the usual insult to Kildare line passengers who get nothing

More details later...

I noticed the Sunday suburban timetable on the Northern line, and that the Enterprise was running a normal weekday timetable (I thought this might have been NIR's doing). This means that the first train out of Drogheda is the 8:20 Enterprise.

While I recognise that demand will be light on Monday, the lack of early morning services is an issue. I know of quite a few people who have to work that day, and there is no train that will get them there in time.

Amen to that. At least today is a public holiday though.
the nineteenth of March was not a public holiday and the first train which according to the sunday timetable runs to tara and pearse and I think to Rosslare, stopped in Connolly and after 7 or 8 minutes, it was announced that this train terminates here.

Yes it was. If a public holiday falls on a weekend, it is the following Monday instead.

No it isn't. Only St Patrick's Day is a public holiday. It is custom to have a day off the monday after a public holiday falling on a weekend day but not the law.

If IE are going to get all bolshy with the law on their customers [andyl] then their customers should get bolshy back at the lies ie tell us.
