I contacted a local politician to see about getting a connection between D11 and the airport. This is what the NTA sent back.

"Currently, there are no plans to extend the Route 140 service to the airport and while we plan to introduce 24-hour services on a number of Routes later this year, starting with Route 41, Route 140 has not been selected for this service at this stage. We will consider these requests in future plans and as Dublin Bus works closely with the National Transport Authority (NTA) in relation to our service provision we will discuss your requests with the NTA also.”

No idea how the 41 going 24 hours helps in any way.

Have a look on the BusConnects thread, there's a rumour one of the Finglas buses will terminate at the airport via St. Margaret's.

Amazing the way they say "there are no plans" without giving a reason and then go into whataboutery on the 41 roure. Its PR speak 101. The 140 going into the airport would connect D6,D1, D2, D7, D9, D11 to the airport which would benefit a couple of hundred thousand people. It would also give D15 residents a chance to connect with it via the 17. On top of that it would give airport workers more options for a place to live than just Swords alone. The routes terminus at Ikea is just a few km short of the airport and has Harristown bus deport right there on the route. For little work it would create a massive benefit for thousands of people but all the NTA have to say is "there are no plans"
