Cllr Colette Connolly suggested that the Bons Secours Hospital provide a rank, stating it shouldn’t always has to be public land that’s used when there’s a private alternative.

Several councillors expressed concern about the lack of connectivity at Ceannt Station and called for a covered walkway like at Dublin Airport.

Director of Services Ciaran Hayes pointed out the difficulties with this in that the city council doesn’t own all the land in question.

Fellow official, Joe Tansey said next year there will be a new entrance and exit atrium near Fishgate, Ceannt Station like Heuston station and it will link all the way to the new taxi rank.
