Railway Station, Kiltimagh in Co. Mayo

Because of the extent of emigration from this area since before the Famine, the Railway Station has always had a special place in our affections.

All the necessities of life were transported through the Station - sugar, flour, spirits, newspapers - even films for the local cinema - while out-goings included cattle, sheep, pigs, beet and eggs.

In 1989 the Goods Store was converted into a museum incorporating two railway carriages to commemorate the thousands of our people who had to leave the area to find work.
