    This thread is the result of reading another article in The Railway Magazine, this time from the May 1951 edition!

    This time we are in the Republic of Ireland, specifically in County Clare. The May 1951 edition of the magazine carried an article on the 3ft gauge light railway which ran from Ennis to Kilrush and Kilkee. The total length of the railway was about 53 miles.

    The first post gives some consideration to the history of the line and then looks at the section of the journey between Ennis and Corofin.
