The Railway Order application which I received in November last from the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) for a Luas extension from Connolly Station to the Point Depot includes a proposed stop at Spencer Dock.

A major focus of Transport 21 is the integration of services of various modes. While specific proposals have not yet been received from Iarnrod Eireann in relation to the location,  in the Docklands area, of the underground station associated with the proposed Rail Interconnector, I would expect that those proposals will take account of the requirements for optimum integration between Luas and commuter rail services.
