    Incidentally, there used to be a station at Glasnevin.

    Now, whether there is room these days for a full length platform and modern requirements etc, is a separate issue.

    I wonder why it was all but totally removed tbh. It seems to be a unique station built on limited land to begin with.
    Glasnevin was a village when built, but when the development of the Carroll estate from 1914 on-wards this would be a prime location for a station. The track alignment has changed and the buildings on the south side of Lindsay Grove are built in on the old embankment. Not to mention the entrance of the Station is now the keg room of the Porterhouse.

    A Station here would link up well with a lot of bus services on the R108.

    The passenger demand for a station at the old cement works just isnt there and when built, the Luas stop will be a short walk away. the area already has several good transport links to the city and as already mentioned the appeal of the new route is to provide a reasonably fast route for Kildare line commuters into the south city business district. A station at cabra will add time onto the journey for very limited return.

    Also a good portion of the land at the cement works has been sold for redevelopment.
