Baldongan, North Co.Dublin, is located near the coastal village of Loughshinny between the towns of Rusk & Lusk and Skerries on the main Dublin to Belfast line. The Dublin & Drogheda Railway opened a station at Baldongan in 1845, one year after constructing their line between Dublin and Drogheda. In the early days of railways most stations were very primitive and Baldongan was no exception; it is probable that it only consisting of wooden platforms and adjacent hut. In 1847 the D&DR closed Baldongan and today no trace remains other than the parallel access road and gate entrance leading to the site of the former platforms.
