History[edit]

The Waterford and Limerick Railway opened the station on 1 May 1852. The company was renamed the Waterford, Limerick and Western in 1896 and merged with the Great Southern and Western Railway in 1901.

In 1880 the Southern Railway of Ireland opened between Clonmel and Thurles on the Dublin–Cork railway line, making Clonmel a junction. CIÉ withdrew passenger services from the Thurles – Clonmel line in 1963 and closed the line to freight in 1967.

In November 2016 Iarnród Éireann announced that the line linking Waterford and Limerick Junction, including Clonmel station, is to close. The closure will be implemented in 2018.
