HistoryEdit

The station initially opened on 1 April 1901 but closed on 1 December 1910[3] with the termination of Kingsbridge (now Heuston Station) to Amiens Street (now Connolly Station) services. Part of the original building was demolished in late 1918.

It reopened on 2 March 1998 as a station on the Maynooth/Longford commuter line.

Dublin MetroEdit

Drumcondra was planned as an interchange stop[4] on the proposed Metro North line of the Dublin Metro.[5]

In March 2018, after the revised plans of the new Dublin Metro, Metrolink, it is now proposed that the Metro will link up with a new station, Glasnevin, on the Western Commuter line, one stop east from Drumcondra.[6]
