“THE BALLYCASTLE RAILWAY REMEMBERED” – New Book, Just out!
The Award Winning Donegal Railway Museum, is delighted to announce the publication of a book, “The Ballycastle Remembered”. Every year the Museum publishes at least one new book, and this year, unusually it has ventured outside of the North West, focusing this time on the Ballycastle Railway.
The book written by railway historian Jim McBride features many unpublished photographs of the famous railway, which once operated between Ballycastle and Ballymoney. Many of these photographs came directly from private collections in Ballycastle as well as from other across these Isles, and from Donegal Museums own archives.
The Ballycastle Railway is very much part of the story of Ballycastle and the towns and villages between it and Ballymoney, and needs to be remembered and celebrated. The railways brought many benefits to North Antrim, not only in general mobility, but also for commerce, tourism, and much more. It was the railways that started to bring the masses to events like The Lammas Fair, to the Ballycastle Golf Course, etc., and also was an important way to transport timber, fish, etc. out of the town. This is a great addition to the local history of Ballycastle and to the story of railway in Ireland.
The new book is just €14 + Postage of €4 = €18
