Croke Park railway station is a proposed railway station intended to serve Croke Park stadium and the planned new National Children's Hospital at the Mater in Dublin. In 2007, Córas Iompair Éireann began examining the feasibility of building a new station to serve the hospital at Dorset Street, near the stadium.[1] In August 2008, an announcement was made that Iarnród Éireann had entered discussions with the GAA, the owners of the stadium, with a view to them contributing to the cost of building the new station.[2] As of 2017, the nearest station to Croke Park is Drumcondra; the two branches of the Western Commuter line run directly behind the Hill 16 terrace and the Canal End.[3]
