A train recently.

I’ve always been a rail user, but feel the prices are making travelling really hard to justify it at the minute. CIE were up in the Dail last month defending their spend for the year, but Irish Rail continue to be performing badly, particulary on the Dublin – Limerick route I take, which is slower than the bus…

Irish rail are pushing their summer sale at the moment, which is three times as expensive as Bus Eireann’s promotion [€5 each way]. Does anyone know  why they can afford to drop to these prices, but still look for more money? Are we paying for both the service of these, and then the reduction of the fares on the service too?

Anyone?
