Dublin has the dubious distinction of being one of the few capital cities in the European Union without a rail link to its main airport. To overcome this the Irish Governement had planned to construct a new underground train link called the Metro North Project. But as a result of the recession, and banking crisis, the Irish Government has had to introduce a series of cut backs. These cut backs have fallen heaviest on capital works projects as spending cuts in these are less politically sensitive. The first casualties were the two planned underground train lines for Dublin City; the Metro North Project and the DART underground.
