Gort railway station
|Limerick to Galway Line|
The station originally opened on 15 September 1869 and closed on 5 April 1976. As part of Iarnród Éireann's Western Rail Corridor project, under the Transport 21 plan, Iarnród Éireann rebuilt the station. The new station opened on 29 March 2010.
Work on Gort station was planned to start in 2008. However, an objection raised by a local company on the basis of traffic hazards regarding the proposal to rebuild the old station. In January 2009, this objection was withdrawn, allowing Iarnród Éireann to begin work rebuilding the station.
