Residents for Realignment were also successful in their campaign to have the Railway Order available for inspection at the Public Library in Millmount Avenue, Glasnevin, Dublin 9.

An Bord Pleanala may decide to hold an oral hearing into the application for a Railway Order.
Residents along the route were also successful in securing independent advice on the impact of the project on their communities. Consultants have been appointed and have started working with residents’ groups. The independent experts will be available to offer residents advice and support for the duration of the Metro North Project.
