Launch of “The County Donegal Remembered”

Donegal Railway Heritage Centre is delighted to announce the publication of a new railway book, titled “The County Donegal Remembered”, by Jim McBride. Jim has been involved with railway heritage and preservation for decades, and is the Irish Editor of the “Disused Stations”.
Jim stated: “This new book on the County Donegal Railway is being published at the end of June 2022 by the Donegal Railway Heritage Centre. This 136 page publication is a collection of 50 colour and 200 black/white photos, the vast majority of which have not been published in book form before. The railways which once operated across Donegal were unique, and we are delighted to be offering new material celebrating this important part of Donegal’s heritage. This book is published locally, with all profits going towards railway preservation in County Donegal.”
Niall McCaughan, Manager of Donegal Railway Heritage Centre stated: “We are delighted yet again to be launching a new book of photographs, celebrating the unique railways across this county. This is the second book by Jim after the acclaimed “The Lough Swilly Remembered” which has proved very popular. Jim again has brought together many fascinating and never before seen photographs of the “County Donegal Railway” in its heyday. We would like to thank Jim in his great work pulling this quality publication, as well as thank Peter Leach for sponsoring the publication/printing of it. This is another welcome addition to the Donegal Railway archive, and is a must-have for anyone interested in our local heritage and in the Donegal railways.”
The Book will be launched at the Museum in Donegal Town on Saturday 18th June, 3pm and is open to the public to attend. The event will also be streamed live on Social Media.
The County Donegal Remembered will be available at our museum, online at and at various bookshops across the North West from the end of this month. Pre-Orders can be taken from Wednesday 15th June. The new book is just €20 + Postage of €4 = €24. For more information contact [email protected] or Tel: 074 9722655
