In Galway a station between Oranmore and Galway is often mentioned as a possibility. In Limerick there has been mention of a station at Moyross on the way to Ennis.

I donít think any of the lines to Youghal, Tuam or Foynes are quick wins as they need significant investment.

There are mutterings of forcing a rail line to be built along side the M20 to get the Greens to agree to it, but building a line alongside a new motorway seems a sure fire way to undermine it before it gets built.
Crusheen (between Ennis and Gort) is on the Network Statement as a forthcoming station
