Former Cherry Orchard station
The former station, Cherry Orchard and Parkwest - originally simply called Cherry Orchard - opened on 16 May 1994. It was closed on 27 July 2008 as part of the Kildare Route Project, a major upgrade of the Dublin-Cork main line as far as Hazelhatch. Due to continuous vandalism the station was shut down. 20 metres up the line, an unofficial crossing point in gap in the fence is used by many people due to the absence of a bridge in the place where the old station was located.
