The review proposes reviving a disused rail line in Co Wexford, potentially connecting Dublin, Rosslare and Waterford. In the west, a line linking the towns of Athenry in Galway and Claremorris in Mayo will also return to use, and a line between Letterkenny and Derry would need to be built from scratch.
