Metrolink Route In South Dublin Shelved Under New Proposals

The cost of the long-awaited MetroLink project could be substantially higher than the original €3 billion figure.

Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the National Transport Authority say it's too early to estimate with certainty what the final cost will be.

A revised plan for the line has curtailed the southside section, meaning it will run from Swords, through Dublin Airport to a final stop on Charlemont Street, and not extend out to Sandyford. 

MetroLink plans won't now affect Na Fianna and Ballymun Kickhams GAA clubs on Dublin's northside.
