Xmas in La Rioja: sorry, says Renfe, trains are only bookable up to December 18. So, Iberia to Pamplona. Marginally more expensive, but you’ll get there.
Paris in early February: sorry, says SNCF as nobbled by Renfe, trains are only bookable 3 months in advance.

So, Ryanair to Beauvais. Far cheaper, quicker and the Irish economy’s only hope.
Strange: 21st Century Crisis doesn’t seem to have shaken the determination of our beloved leaders to turn a crap and costly national train monopoly into a myriad of crapper and costlier regional ones.
