Irish Rail – A small bit done in Dublin a lot to do down the country

Travelled up by train from Thurles to Dublin on the 10.51 morning train. Due to the torrential rain I took shelter in the decrepit waiting room with 7 chairs and a very large desk. Decor hadn’t changed since 1978. Train was 54 mins late. Could not buy a paper as the station shop is closed.
Reserved a seat via the web but the seat hadn’t been reserved on the train, luckily found a seat. New trains are nice, staff on new trains get the thumbs up.
How Irish rail handles their customers at rural stations and their appalling lack of facilities gets a thumbs down.
