The planned second Dublin runway is on hold (appropriate term) in the light of the Aer Rianta breakup plan. It will cost a shedload of money, but sadly Shannon or Cork will not be asked to contribute to Dublin's capital debts - unlike Dublin Airport to theirs.

The Second Terminal is still being considered.

Light , or conventional rail links to the airport are much discussed but dont hold your breath.

140m of these debts relate directly to the construction of the new terminal at Cork. Aer Rianta (John Bourke in an interview with John F Keyes Nov 2002) are quoted as saying

Originally printed by Airport world magazine Who else but Aer Rianta would invest 140m in a new terminal at Cork?

I think ignored would be a better description.
