To ask the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs the supports he will provide to facilitate the opening of a rail stop at Crusheen, County Clare, on the new western rail corridor; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

I am aware that Irish Rail has made a proposal with regard to the development of a railway station at Crusheen, Co Clare, on the Western Rail Corridor.
My Department has already supported the development of the Western Rail Corridor as part of Transport 21 and I am currently examining the latest proposal regarding Crusheen. My officials are in contact with Iarnród Éireann and a decision in this regard will be made in due course, subject to resources.
