Your Savant travelled to Dublin today to enlighten that benighted place. First time travelling by train for years, with CIE showing a major improvement from that time (admittedly that's like saying someone is the tallest dwarf). It seems despite (because of) running trains every hour, CIE is doing a roaring business, as the picture here underlines.
However, your Savant's benign mood was threatened when the announcer started gibberish in Irish. I thought 'bloody great. Maybe intelligent foreigners might understand a few words, but what about the natives?'. I needn't have worried - because here was the message "Ta trollai snacai ar an traen, leis sandwishai, panninnai, coffai agus tae". Everyone understood perfectly!
