There is no proposal within the National Development Planto extend the rail line north of Claremorris to Letterkenny and, as such, there are no detailed cost estimates available.

However, regional rail connectivity, including to the North-West, is one of the key issues for consideration as part of the All Island Strategic Rail Review, the report of which is due in Quarter 4 this year. The provision of rail to the North-West will be considered in this context.
