Connolly Station - Dublin

Connolly Station - Dublin, originally uploaded by infomatique.

Connolly has seven platforms in total; four terminal (1-4) for trains approaching from the north, and three through - the former Amiens St Jctn station - (5-7), for trains either terminating or passing from the south.

There are three Intercity routes served:

* The Enterprise service to Belfast (intermediate stops, Drogheda, Dundalk, Newry, Portadown)
* Sligo Mac Diarmada (some main stops, Maynooth, Mullingar, Longford)
* Rosslare Europort, via Pearse Station and the "loop line" bridge (selected stops, Arklow, Gorey, Wexford)

Suburban services run on the same routes, as far as Drogheda, Dundalk, Maynooth and Gorey or Enniscorthy. The DART service uses some of the platforms equipped with overhead electrics (Platforms 5, 6, and 7). Terminal platform 4 is also electrified, although electric trains rarely use it.
