Last week, I was presenting a course in Ireland and I took the opportunity to sandwich it between some rail travel - taking a look at how things work over there.  Many experiences, much to learn and some I will share in due course.  Some things good, some bad.  Some would work in Great Britain and others would not.   But I look not at the trains - but how the public transport network works for the people.

A nice set of photos there - I see you travelled through Limerick Junction (fifth photo). There are plans for another platform there.

PS: for anyone who may be interested there is a project (and attendant consultation) underway to totally revamp the Dublin city bus network.
