It is down to IE management not making the other services clockface, and choosing to make it haphazard.
There is a BIG difference.
Fair enough, you normally know your stuff around here better than I do.
I'm just annoyed that an already overcrowded and slow service (due to being hemmed in behind DARTs when it would be much easier to delay a DART and let us run ahead unimpeded) now has to make additional stops for Malahide and Portmarnock residents who will already be benefitting from an improved DART service. Our trains are going to become even more packed and if somebody from Malahide or Portmarnock tries their best to get on an already packed citybound commuter train, there will be trouble (albeit not caused by myself and not the fault of said commuter either).
Sometimes I wonder what those in scheduling actually think about when they're instigating these changes.
