youghal could be amazing with a bit of money invested in the place, like a mix of clon and kinsale, only better.... can't believe they're closing off any potential for a monorail with that stoopid greenway though, ffs


by all means build a greenway but NOT on the train line

The novelty of the greenway will wear off after a few weeks, The only problem with reopening the rail line is cost, I get the 7.45 am train from midleton and it is standing room only but id say there are times during the day when the train would be well less than half full,

and if towns further on down the line like youghal were added it'd be busier

the population is only gonna increase (barring another potato famine)

whats wrong with ditches and fields..a greenway is about being out in nature more than anything.

Of course the rail line should have been restored. Shite local politicians. Now theyre acting like the greenway is anything but the death knell for the town.

Funny you say that, cos in the past I've heard places that were desolate or dreary or just lacking any life described as "It's like Youghal on a winter's day"

I think the removal of the railway line killed the place. Stopped day trippers who were bringing vital commerce to the place back in the day, and now it means that anyone wanting to commute by train has to drive to Midleton. Now Midleton is absolutely thriving by comparison.
