| The 22000 Class "InterCity Railcar" is a diesel multiple unit type in service with Iarnród Éireann in Ireland. In a new departure for Iarnród Éireann they will be the first railcars to have been built specifically to serve on InterCity routes and are capable of speeds of up to 100 mph (160 km/h). In 2005, the Irish Government announced the €34billion Transport 21 proposal, intended to implement significant improvements to Ireland's transport infrastructure, with major emphasis on the railway network. As part of this, large-scale replacement of rolling stock was planned. At this time, this was made up entirely of locomotive hauled coaching stock, the majority of which was based on the British Rail Mark 2 and British Rail Mark 3. IÉ ordered a total of 120 new vehicles to replace the existing coaching stock.|
