Let's have late night trains from Dublin to provincial cities

This petition had 161 supporters

The last train from Dublin to Sligo is 19.05, to Galway 19.35, Waterford, 18.35 and Cork/Limerick at  21.00 to Wexford 18.38. Isn’t it about time we had a late night service to our provincial cities.   Long distance commuting is a fact of life. Even the near distant urban centres like Mullingar, Longford and Athlone don’t have a service after 8 pm.  Dublin, as our capital is the national centre for theatre, music and entertainment events but try to get home long distance on a train after the theatre or a show.  Why not have a late night train service to the provincial centres. Why can’t there be an 11 pm departure to Sligo, or even Longford or Athlone? Why not an express train to Galway or Cork or Wexford and Waterford at 11 pm? Would you use such a service?  Have Irish Rail ever considered this idea?
