We have unveiled details of the emerging preferred option for DART+ Coastal North, the latest phase of the transformative DART+ Programme, which will dramatically increase train service frequency and capacity in the Greater Dublin Area.

DART+ Coastal North will extend the DART from Malahide to Drogheda with an increased and improved electrified network, and allow more trains to run, and more commuters switch to public transport, between Drogheda and Dublin City Centre, including Howth to Howth Junction.

Meanwhile, it promises to deliver:

A more than doubling of service and passenger capacity from Drogheda to the city centre by increasing the number of trains from 11 to 24 and capacity for commuters from 12500 – 26600 per 3 hour peak period.

Drogheda Garda Station.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minister for Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan TD visit Drogheda Garda Station today as part of campaigning in counties Louth and Offaly on Day 3 of the General Election 2020.

Mr Varadkar and Mr Flanagan are speaking to gardaí who are investigating the feud between two criminal gangs, which is believed to be linked to the murder of 17-year-old Keane Mulready-Woods earlier this week.

Our Lady Of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda, Co Louth

The Liberal is reporting a protest is set to take place outside Our Lady Of Lourdes hospital today “in efforts to stop two abortions that are believed to be taking place”.


This morning in The Times Ireland edition.

Ellen Coyne reports:

Anti-abortion activists who tried to coax a woman into a fake scan appointment also tried to report a separate termination to gardaí last week, The Times can reveal.

Activists working for the Good Counsel Network, which runs a rogue crisis pregnancy agency in Dublin, turned up at Drogheda garda station claiming to have knowledge about an abortion performed at Our Lady of Lourdes hospital. They called for the doctors involved to be investigated and possibly prosecuted.

…Eamonn Murphy, an anti-abortion activist who works for the Woman’s Centre and the Good Counsel Network, was at Drogheda garda station last week trying to report a crime after “an innocent person was killed”.

He tried to tell a garda that the doctor involved should face a 14-year prison sentence for being involved in an “unlawful killing”.
