    The part that is bold is a curve ball that has come out of nowhere!

    " from

    Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan will bring the draft report of the first All-Island Strategic Rail Review, which makes 30 recommendations, to Cabinet later this morning.

    This review wants faster speeds, improved frequency, and new rail routes for people and freight, particularly across the west and north of the country.

    The recommendations span a period of over 25 years, but a number of proposals could be implemented before 2030.

    These include taking more trucks off the roads by building the Limerick to Foynes railway and starting the South Wexford Railway between Waterford and Rosslare Europort.

    There is also a suggestion to develop a rail line around Dublin Port.

    The reopening of the Claremorris to Athenry line, along with the Antrim to Lisburn line with a station at Belfast International Airport, is also recommended."
