I might be tempted to take that wager.....

About this time 2 years ago, I looked at the timetable, thought I'd end up in Limerick at 9ish, but got there at 10 courtesy of a tour of North tipp on a bus.

Timetabled BE services Roscrea-Limerick are faster. Train average timetabled speed 30mph. The N7 heads in a different direction after that.
