So true if all plans were exectuted fully we wouldn’t need trains because we’d never have stopped dancing at the crossroads and if we abandoned that the DRTS plan of 1976 would have had Dart to Tallaght, Blanchardstown and the Airport by 1985 with an interchange at Stephens Green.

Not quite. In that plan, the interchange was to be somewhere around Dame Street/Temple Bar/College Green, rather than at St. Stephen’s Green.

As everyone knows, these are consistently busier areas than St. Stephen’s Green, and it probably therefore makes much more sense to route the proposed interconnector towards these areas.

It’s hard to know why St. Stephen’s Green seems to currently be the favoured spot for a station, rather than these busier areas. I’ve yet to see any convincing argument.
