When adding a new station, there has to be some caution regarding the impact on existing passengers. There's no point adding a station that provides 50 pax per day, if the extra time for Dundalk commuters sends 50 of them into their cars or onto the bus.

I know this was one reason why a 2nd Midleton station was rejected, so hopefully the same logic applies in Louth.

It would possibly not be so bad if the line was electrified, but the diesel railcars accelerate so slowly that it would take time.
