Irish Rail Proposing Number Of New Extra Rail Services.

Irish Rail are proposing to introduce a number of new extra services which will benefit Thurles; with the public invited to give feedback on their possible introduction.

The changes are expected to begin with effect from December 10th next, should they be implemented, and would see extra Cork, Carlow, Westport, Portlaoise, Mallow, and Drogheda services, with Irish Rail looking at adding extra stops along the Dublin to Cork railway line.

Indeed, one of the more notable proposed new services will be an additional train from Dublin to Cork that would leave Heuston at 6:00am before arriving in Kent Station at 8:32am, running each day from Monday to Friday, thus allowing passengers to arrive in Cork, from Dublin, before 9:00am.

Two extra morning services between Cork and Mallow at peak times are also being proposed.

In terms of rail journey times, Irish Rail has stated that it expects improvements on the Dublin to Cork and Dublin to Limerick services, thanks to recently undertaken rail works.
