Limerick people urged to have their say on new Moyross train station

A public consultation on the proposed Moyross Train Station is to open shortly.

A PUBLIC consultation is soon to be launched ahead of the imminent opening of the Moyross train station, with locals invited to have their say on the transformative new transport infrastructure.

This coming Monday, May 20, marks the start of the consultation.

The launch of the public consultation was welcomed by Limerick Green Party councillor Saša Novak Uí Chonchúir, who predicts the new rail connection will bring massive opportunity for the area.

“This is a project that will transform the area and unlock opportunities for residents and businesses,” Cllr Novak said.

Cllr Novak said she has been working closely with Transport Minister Eamon Ryan and local TD Brian Leddin to deliver the rail project.

“This is a huge opportunity for the north side of Limerick,” she said.

“The new train station in Moyross is more than just a station; it’s a gateway to greater investment, new housing development opportunities and improved access to services.”

The councillor sees the new train station as the first chapter in a bigger vision to develop a metropolitan railway network for Limerick, connecting the city to Shannon Airport.

Hugh Creegan, the deputy chief executive of the National Transport Authority, confirmed to Brian Leddin TD that Irish Rail had appointed an engineering design firm – AtkinsRéalis – to undertake the preliminary design and support the statutory planning process for the new Moyross station.

Subject to planning consent and funding, the station is currently expected to be completed in the second half of 2026, with commissioning of the station expected thereafter.

“This is an exciting time for Moyross and the entire northside,” Cllr Novak added.

“I urge everyone to get involved and contribute their ideas. Together, we can make this project a remarkable success and lay the foundation for a thriving Limerick.”

The non-statutory public consultation will run from May 20 to June 14.
