Sure that'll be 18 months or more before it's out and everyone will have quietly forgotten about it. Nobody will resign (as usual).

Clonsilla is now left open even when unmanned so you can get to the TVM and through the barriers after hours (the way it should be). Not sure if all Maynooth line stations are like this now. This was...

I'm afraid to say I agree that no further Luas lines should be built along medieval tracks otherwise known as Dublin streets. They are unsuitable for quality tramlines. You'll get them through but...

I'm really not so sure they do Mark. I mean people beyond here and boards>commuting etc. People are so used to requiring different tickets that they don't question it.

I'm delighted with ABP and this decision. It's time we saw more local authorities' knuckles wrapped for innapropriate planning decisions.

Naas can hardly be described as having a railway connection seeing as it was torn up many years ago and the M7 built over it. Sallins is not Naas and the road between the two is choked with cars...
