Senator Paul Coghlan
The 2016 Rail Review recommends dropping the direct Dublin to Tralee train, the Fine Gael Senator says this would be a severe retrograde step, that would have have a negative impact on Kerry.

Senator Coghlan says he was very concerned to read the recommendation of the Rail Review that every train out of Kerry change at Mallow.

He says Kerry is a national tourist destination and Irish Rail will be adversely affecting the tourism potential of the county by cutting the direct train link from Dublin to Tralee.
