RCDC Chairman John Lupton has welcomed the announcement by Minister Alan Kelly of an enhanced train service for Roscrea.

RCDC have been campaigning for the local rail service to be upgraded for a considerable period of time and feared that failure to do so would lead to the eventual loss of the station and rail service.

The Community Development Council have argued that a proper commuter service between Roscrea and Dublin would make Roscrea much more accessible and allow people to choose to come to live in the town or to stay living in it.
