Pelletstown station will help State achieve climate goals, Eamon Ryan says

Louis O’Donoghue and Mary Rose Murphy could hardly be happier that Ireland’s newest railway station has opened at Pelletstown, Co Dublin.

Located on the westward Dublin to Maynooth line, between the Ashtown and Broombridge stations, the station “will give great access for walks in the Dublin mountains, for instance”, said Mr O’Donoghue, “and to Howth. Mary Rose likes to go swimming in Howth on Sundays.”

A Tipperary man, he is partial to Dublin’s southside. “We can [now] get out to Bride’s Glen with just one switch on the line,” he said. Both Mr O’Donoghue and Ms Murphy are members of the Irish Ramblers Club, and the new station will make it “much easier to access the Dublin mountains, than by car or bus”, he said.

On Sunday afternoon the two took the train “from Pelletstown to Broombridge and walked back by the canal. It’s a great facility,” Mr O’Donoghue said.
