Portarlington station is a railway station on the Dublin-Cork Main Line.

It is the branching-off/exchange point for services to Galway, Ballina, and Westport. The Galway/Mayo line diverges at the west end of the station via a single lead junction towards Athlone.

The station is situated just outside Portarlington, County Laois, Ireland.[1]

The station formerly had a third track between the platforms "the centre or middle road" which was removed in 2005 when the platforms were lengthened and widened in preparation for the introduction of Mk 4 Inter City trains.

History[edit]

The station opened on 26 June 1847.[2]
