    I hope there's a contingency being put in place for the hypothetical traveller on the ex-Sligo train arriving into Maynooth at 2125 who would normally transfer onto the 2140 to go to a local stop, as they would now have to wait until 2210.

    So one of the half hourly Maynooth Connolly evening services has now been cancelled? I thought the off peak frequency was being heralded as one of the main passenger enhancements early this year with the last timetable overhaul? Now we're back to once an hour after 9pm!

    Is this passenger not mostly hypothetical, Surely there is very little demand for this

    Pretty solid demand for Maynooth both directions for all evening trains during college term.

    Maybe so however the NTA would not allow the 21.40 be cut if numbers were particularly strong.
