Kennedy Analysis (and others) spent years calling for an independent review of this project. In 2018 the CRU was finally asked to review the project - that review was meant to be completed in 2019. It has still not been completed: the CRU says this is because Irish Water has not provided the necessary information - yet Irish Water continues to spend money and progress the project as if no review was going on. When the project was sent for review the Irish Times published this editorial:
On 25 April 2018 Kennedy Analysis appeared before the Joint Committee (whose role is to hold Irish Water to account) to discuss the proposed Shannon-to-Dublin pipeline.

(scroll through to 1h34m, when the relevant session begins).

"Shannon pipeline not needed if Dublin water leaks fixed, study claims"
