Its with great regret that I report that the NTA board meeting has just ended and the decision is to close the line

We are waiting on a full statement from the NTA

If even Wexford to rosslare.......

What worries me was cies reference to privatising rosslare Limerick and rosslare greystones on morning Ireland earlier today ie wanting a private company to come in.

A tiny bit of positive from this it's Joe ryans comments on boards It's good to see the option of a private company coming in at this stage anyone could do better than ie,

Otherwise a complete an utter farce. Would love to see this being challenged.
