If the Indo or Sindo had their way in the 80s we wouldn’t even have DART now. It’s like the first cuckoo of spring, to hear McCarthy et al dumping on any rail proposal. Imagine a plethora of infrequent variants of core bus routes, with packed buses dripping with sweaty condensation as the alternate reality we’d be dealing with now in Dublin instead.
