Abandoned Train Station

In Killeagh, East Cork, there’s an abandoned train station from I don’t know how long ago. According to Wikidepia it’s unlikely that the station will be restored because there isn’t enough demand. The Cork-Midleton line will however open by 2008.
While researching this post I found out that the town of Killeagh was an important place in the Fenian Rising of 1867!

    I like the composition. Without researching the station I would say one of the earliest stations. The moldings on masonry work are very similar to a station here in Mexico that has been declared “Heritage (Patromony) of Humanity”.

    The secret to conservation lies in finding a “practical use” that preserves history for present and future generations, while providing a social benefit (monetary, social or historic value) that outways the costs of restauration.

    Thank you for sharing this piece of history.
