Bring back the overnight train from Holyhead to Birmingham sign now

For Over 100 years there has always been a service from Holyhead at 2am to connect with the arriving ferries from Dublin.

However when Virgin trains was given the access rights to Holyhead in 2007 the service was cut in 2008/9. The cut has made it more an more difficult to make trips from Ireland on the evening crossings as there are no rail connections til 4.30am, and Holyhead is not the nicest of rail stations to be at at 1am.

I would like people to petition Virgin, Arriva trains wales and the Welsh Assembly to reinstate the service. as its does not make any sense that Fishguard in south wales still has a connecting rail service at 01.50am 7 days a week and Holyhead which is the busiest Irish route does not.
