"OK Folks, heres where we are at, we are looking into starting up the Community Rail Partnership on the Rosslare-Waterford line, we have the support of Irish Rail and now we need the support of all of you here and all the public not on here. I will be calling a public meeting and hope to see as many of you there as possible. I will post up the date and time as soon as it is confirmed.

Page Description: "Established in 1906 the Waterford to Rosslare rail line serves Rosslare Harbour and provided commuters in West Wexford with a vital link to Waterford City.

The McCarthy Report targeted the line for closure and on 18th September 2010, Iarnród Éireann suspended their passenger service on the line.

Several train operating companies from other EU companies have expressed an interest in operating trains on the line. The Save the Rail group is working with the relevant parties to bring this to fruition.

Thankfully the National Transport Authority (NTA) attached a number of conditions to the suspension:
• The line must be maintained to a standard fit for use and this will be independently audited.
• A community rail partnership (CRP) must be facilitated.

In the interim we will also monitor the line."
