There will be no tumbleweed rolling down the platform in Ballymartle any day soon, if it still looks like this! Abandoned for some time and badly neglected judging by the overgrown permanent way and platform. When did it close, and where is it? Even the O’Learys had never heard of it before.

    Closed 31.08.1931. On the Kinsale branch of the Cork, Bandon & South Coast Railway. Originally operated by the Cork and Kinsale Junction Railway. Surprising that the name board had lain there undisturbed for 30 years, nowadays it would be up on eBay the next day.
