Once again a master class in how not to word a notice

It doesn't tell us why the trains are cancelled. It doesn't tell us where the works are being carried out and why. It doesn't explain that there are changes to the Limerick Junction - Limerick connections of the Cork trains

And why the fascination with Athlone? why not Tullamore?

On the last point, I would guess it has something to do with not being able to turn a train at Tullamore.

Just to explain this

There is no problem running the 22:45 service to Kildare there is nothing in the way to stop it. The 22:45 is cancelled since Irish Rail are too lazy to park the railcar in Kildare overnight

No one is really going to miss the first Heuston Kildare local train on a Sunday anyway

So once again we suffer since Irish Rail want to be lazy
