Over this weekend, Dublin Cork and Limerick rail line services, affecting Thurles, are set to be disrupted with service cancellations and bus replacement transfers, latter which will impact several Munster and Leinster counties.

For commuters travelling to Dublin, Irish Rail confirm that Dart services are also expected to be somewhat restricted.

On tomorrow, Saturday, November 9th, 2019, Irish Rail confirm that the following changes will apply.

21:00 hrs: Dublin Heuston to Cork will operate using a bus transfer from Heuston serving Portlaoise and Thurles, when commuters will then continue their journey by train from Thurles to Cork.

20:25 hrs: Cork to Dublin Heuston reverse run will operate again back to Thurles only, with bus transfers in operation beginning from Thurles; serving Portlaoise, Portarlington, Monasterevin, Kildare, Newbridge and Heuston.

On Sunday, November 10th the 08:30hrs Heuston to Tralee service is deferred to the later time of 09:00hrs.

Iarnród Éireann, apologising for this disruption to services, state that this investment of some €10 million in overall line improvements, will lead to greater service reliability; smoother running of trains and will further deliver a consistent 160kph speeds (100 mph), which in turn will deliver shorter journey times for its consumers.
