I had business in Dublin on Friday afternoon so once that was out of the way I went over to Pearse to see the recent developments there with the roof renewal. After sampling the 1641 GCD - Hazelhatch service between Pearse and Parkwest (most seats in the carriage I was in were occupied), I doubled back to Heuston on the 1625 Portlaoise - Heuston to catch the 1800 Heuston - Cork to Ballybrophy for the Nenagh branch connection. An interesting, if a little convoluted way of getting across the city.
