London and North Western Railway steamers from Holyhead serve Dublin North Wall, where the LNWR opens a Dublin North Wall [LNWR] station and sidings connected to the Midland Great Western Railway line, the station located just east of Dublin North Wall Goods [MGWR].
|/ /1884||City of Dublin Junction Railways|
Act passed to connect the Dublin and Kingstown Railway to other railways in Dublin (the ^Loop Line^). (Previously opposed by the London and North Western Railway for fear of loss of traffic from the Holyhead to Dublin North Wall route.)
|/ /1901||International Engineering Congress, Glasgow|
Three tunnel routes considered from Scotland/Wales to Ireland: Mull of Kintyre to Antrim (revival of the 1868 proposal, rejected due to remoteness of Kintyre), Holyhead to Howth (rejected due to length), Wigtownshire to Larne/Donaghadee (passing north round the deep trench of the Beaufort^s Dyke). Latter considered most suitable with a route from north of Portpatrick to Whitehead.
