I've a friend who was in low to middle management in the DAA for a few years who told me this. He also said most people in the DAA are at some sort of management level, so it might not hold much weight.

Personally I think they may have side-stepped the rail issue (politically only) via the sheer number of bus routes now operating out of the airport. Shur if you have a bus going virtually 24/7 to Ballina via Longford, or to Navan, then it keeps people quiet. Ironically it's most of the greater Dublin area (with a few exceptions) that is the hardest to get to/from the airport. But then again, as a culchie living in Dublin for 25 years, the Dubs were always sold short, and allowed themselves to be.
