New rail fares have been introduced by Irish Rail. Across the network the average rail fare has increased by 6%. But although these fare increases have been approved by the National Transport Authority, there are some strange faults in the fare structure when comparing different trips.
Twice the fare for the same distance travelled. For example a train journey from Sallins to Dublin will cost twice the price of the similar length trip between Maynooth town and Dublin.
