Killybegs Railways

these railroads tracks are all that is left from the Killybegs railway station.  They go right to the end of the pier.  The following info is from Wikipedia:  The railway station was part of the Donegal Railway Company line from Donegal to Killybegs.  The station opened 18 October 1893 and closed on 1 January 1960.
In February 1924 the goods shed was burgled and four cases of whiskey were taken



The last two photos are historical photos of the railway that I found in a search.

Killybegs terminus of the branch from Strabane, a railcar just visible behind the train shed, probably running round the van in the foreground.  (the year is unknown)

you can always tell when holiday time comes around, the glass recycle bins are all full.  It should be back to normal tomorrow when the recycle truck comes by and empties the containers.
