Curious that they don't tell us about it isn't it

Clearly someone knows about it.

Cork trains is a Mk3 and there are only 38 seats left in standard and 30 in first, all 7 coaches reserved

Galway also a Mk3 but with only 4 coaches on the reservation system, 60 seats in standard available

They'd Probably be advertised and sold on a local level (ie through stations) would they?
