Ardagh was a station which served Ardagh in County Limerick, Ireland.


The station was opened by the Waterford and Limerick and Rathkeale and Newcastle Junction railways, then absorbed into the Great Southern and Western Railway. In 1924 the Railways Act passed by the Oireachtas of the Irish Free State moved the station to the Great Southern Railway. In 1925 another merger led to management by the Great Southern Railways. Then it was moved to the CIÉ by the Transport Act 1944[1] from 1 January 1945, on nationalisation. The station closed under this management.

The site today[edit]

The former railway through the station is part of the Southern Trail Ireland.
