You're probably right about getting nothing; once there is a division of opinion among councillors nothing can happen.
However when it comes to identifying a different route, that sums up where the rail lobby screwed up. If they had pushed for a railway alongside a revamped M17/N17, and if the first phase of the wrc had been built alongside the motorway from Limerick, it might just have performed well enough to tempt some reckless minister into edging it northwards.
Now however with the failure of the first bit to deliver, other than existing commuter traffic at either end, the wrc project is dead in the water, and nothing can change that.
