Category: Tag:


The official home of the County Donegal Railway is pleased to offer the  new edition of Dr EM Patterson’s first volume on the history of the narrow-gauge railways of North-West Ireland, originally published in 1962. This definitive text on the County Donegal Railway by Patterson was updated by two of our Members, Joe Begley and Steve Flanders in 2014.

The County Donegal Railways had a route of 124 miles, five termini and three junction stations. For the most part they traversed hilly and thinly-populated country and for two generations they were a busy and efficient operation. This edition adds a valuable chapter of interviews and memories of some of the surviving workers and others who had contact with the railway. It also includes a chapter on the County Donegal Railway today (as over 50 years after closure, much can still be seen of the former network), and some additional Glover drawings of locomotive, carriage and wagon stock.

The new book is just €20 + Postage of €7 = €27
