If Dublin's first underground rail line goes ahead in its current form it will transform local amenities into a construction site of an unprecedented scale.

That's the warning from a sports club in Glasnevin, which could lose access to some of its facilities while Metrolink is being built.

The 26 kilometre line between Swords and Sandyford is expected to take six years to complete.

Chairman of Na Fianna GAA club, Cormac O'Donnchu, is in favour of the project - just not in its current form, he says "it will transform a space which has been lovingly nurtured by a generation of volunteers as a remarkable culture and community centre into a construction site of an unprecedented scale, it will silence the heart beat of our local community".
