Also provides a handy backup if Connolly is closed/blocked for any reason
The question raised by that point Mark, is, how many of those people would be prepared to pay the extra money that would be required to get either a rail/luas ticket or pay separately on the LUAS?

Bear in mind that these people currently pay only the rail fare.
