Charleville railway station
Charleville railway station is station on the Cork to Dublin Railway line.
It is located a mile outside the town of Charleville mostly in North County Cork, Ireland though the border with County Limerick, Ireland crosses the track alignment diagonally, towards the northern end of the platforms. The station is thus, unique in that it is the only open railway station in Ireland which straddles two counties. It is a small station, with three through platforms, though the third is rarely used.
Although a commuter service used to operate to Charleville for several years, the service ended in 2004 as a result of poor take-up.
The station opened on 19 March 1849 and was closed for goods traffic on 6 September 1976.
