A northern extension of the WRC mentioned today in the Times

https://www.irishtimes.com/news/irel...ages-1.3753805

firmly tongue in cheek one hopes given the scale of work required just to bring the current intercity network to some standard considered acceptable in the remoter parts of Eastern Europe.

Galway line needs to be double tracked ASAP It’s actually beyond a joke.

Sure don’t some of the cyclists want to hobble the Galway line by wanting a cycle path in parallel with the existing single line?

Isn't it turned into a greenway?, ensuring it will never again revert to Railway status, the Lycra Nazis and tourist ripoff industry ensuring another piece of critical infrastructure is destroyed.

I don't think so - it was suggested as a route for the Galway-Athlone greenway, most cyclists would rather not cycle beside an operational railway.
