The Taoiseach has called on Transport Infrastructure Ireland to look for a new construction site for the Metrolink.
A number of schools and sports clubs say current plans for Dublin's first underground rail line would have a negative impact on them.
Those behind the project have warned that making changes will cause the budget to rise significantly.
Speaking in the Dail, Leo Varadkar said "certainly my message would be to find an alternative option to digging up this important club which is just the heart and soul of that community and that part of Dublin".
Last week a meeting of The Transport Committee was told that Metrolink will transform local amenities into a "construction site of an unprecedented scale".
If it goes ahead in its current form, Metrolink will run for 26 kilometers between Swords and Sandyford - with construction expected to take six years to complete.
A number of schools and sports clubs have raised concerns that the works mean they will lose access to some of their facilities, and also be affected by noise, pollution and extra traffic.
