Default Programme for Government 2020

The recently agreed-on programme for government says it prioritizes the Dublin Metro and expansion of DART & Luas.
It gives a few other vague mentions of railways.
The whole thing can be read here:

Part of page 14:
Specifically, the Government will prioritise plans for the
delivery of Metrolink, Luas and other light rail expansion, DART
expansion and interconnector and Bus Connects in Dublin,
Cork, Galway, and Limerick.
Part of page 15:
We will:
∑ In line with the commitment in the National Planning
Framework to balanced regional development,
prioritise rail projects in Cork, Galway, Limerick, and
Waterford on existing and unused lines.
∑ Continue to fund safety works and capital
improvements to the rail network, expand the Irish
Rail fleet and progress the electrification of rail
services to decrease journey times and emissions.
∑ Commission an economic evaluation of higher-speed
rail links between our main cities.
I'm curious about the mention of projects in Cork, Galway, Waterford & Limerick on existing & unused lines.
I can't imagine what they are referring to, if they have any projects in mind at all.
Would anyone here know any projects which they might be referring to here?
