Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.

I like the brickwork in the chimneys on the LHS. Yet another Bovril sign, several of your pictures have them.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackpoolbeach Thanks Pete! You on OSI duty while Niall's away? :)
Great photo, the building on the left is one of the few still in existence on the ex GNR network. Also of interest is the very short goods loading bank and siding in the background. This kind of local traffic dwindled in later years. The cabin was regrettably burnt down in the late 1990s, as for the shelter it too disappeared in the 90s.
I just noticed the headboard on the signal cabin proclaims 'Laytown & Bettystown', though this must have been shortened to just Laytown in later years. I believe the station got it's double name when nearby Bettystown lost its own station in the early years of the railway (1847).
Judging by the OS map, the siding's about 100 yards. That's about the same as the one in Malahide was as well.
"De Laytown ladies sing this song,
Doo-da, Doo-da ...."

The ladies hats seem too modern for 1910.
[http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/] The sign could be "Keating's Powder Kills"
http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackpoolbeach http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] Definitely "Keating's Powder Kills". I added it to the tags already...
And Pete, what would you say then, 1900??
http://www.flickr.com/photos/flyingsnail Thanks, had completely overlooked the Bettystown aspect...
http://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland Just guessing, but the hats seem to be after 1910.
Then again, I have been wearing the same cap style for 25 years.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/blackpoolbeach I think it must be pre-independence - there's a pair of british soldiers in uniform in the crowd.
