Default Stations Closing??

Anyone know if there is any truth in the rumour of station closures on the Sligo line after Christmas?
I've heard IR plan closing stations
Why?

No plans what so ever

Don't be fooled by a publicity seeking local councillor

Hopefully it is...
I don't want to say here which two stations exactly, as I use either or on a regular basis.

Dromod + Collooney ?


Both have 10-20 times the daily use of Athymon which is on the endangered list

What sort of savings would they get closing Athymon? It's already unmanned and only a handful of trains serve the station which is why there is low numbers and of course a few minutes away there is a major station. Don't see the benefit of closing it for those reasons.

a glance at Google Maps would indicate there could be other reasons
