With the stupidity gods themselves battles in vain

A God complex; you’ve done everything else!

Whilst you are on Germany lets look at how the Germans connect their main hub-airport FFM or Frankfurt

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Schienennetzplan_Frankfurt_am_Main.png

If the model were followed in Dublin it would equate to an express train from Connolly stopping only at Howth Junction and Portmarnock

If Munich were the model it would involve an interconnector solution being used with a normal commuter train using a common route and diverting to the airport after serving a number of existing stations.

As for Berlin the prioritised airport of Berlin Schonefeld is a mix between a DB line RE7 and an extension of S9 which is again an interconnector type of service doing the central spine before serving the airport as a destination

I can’t see anything that vaguely resembles Metro North here
