An un-used train station in Dublin will need a 3.8 million euro refurbishment before it can become operational

Kishoge station in West Dublin cost 6.35 million euro to build, but failed to open after nearby housing developments stalled during the recession.

Construction on it finished in 2009 but some of the housing developments stalled in the recession and the station has been idle since.

According to the Irish Independent, Irish Rail now says it intends to have it up and running by the end of 2023.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has admitted it did not realise the extent of the work that was needed.
