The village of Cloughjordan, north Co.Tipperary, acquired its station when the Great Southern & Western Railway extended their line from Roscrea south towards Limerick in 1863, eventually forming the Ballybrophy to Limerick branch. The station at Cloughjordan is one of the smaller types built on the line, and consisted of a single platform, small station building and signal cabin. Cloughjordan ceased to be block post in 1977, and the loop serving the cattle bank on the down side of the station and the sidings serving the large stone built goods shed, located at the south end, were removed. Today the station is unstaffed though relatively tidy despite the level of service provided on the line.
