All this just to travel?

So I wanna go visit my good friend pat. He lives in dublin, I live in cork, its a train ride of about 3 hours.
Well, first, I’ll have to ring the train station. I’m unsure on how the booking system works. I know your supposed to book a seat on the train, if you want to travel.
I have a train pass, everyone whose disabled gets one. Usually that means you don’t have to book a seat, you can usually just turn up at the station and ask for assistance, and some nice guy will help you to get on the train and off again at the other end.
Now since covid hit, I am unsure of how it all works.
I havent traveled to Dublin in over 18 months now. So call them, right? Ok, off to do that now.
Ok well, they aint answering, probably cause its 8:30 at night. Oh well. I tried. Will have to try again tomorrow morning.
But this is maddening. I mean I just want to visit my friend, and there is all this hassle, about booking, about trains only having 50 percent capacity, so you may not be able to get a seat for weeks in advance, I’m really just not sure how this is all going to work.
But, I am going to do my darndest to make it work! Its important to me that I get to see pat.
Plus, I wanna see his new guide dog, Zarley also! I’ve heard all about him and I want to meet him! I’ve heard he’s a licker so he’s going to lick me to death! And Nitro will have a buddy to play with! He’ll be thrilled!
