Crusheen

Crusheen, Co.Galway, is located on the 1860s Waterford Limerick & Western's built Limerick to Athenry line. Crusheen Station had up & down platforms, single storey stone built station building, small goods shed and GSWR style signal cabin, once located at the north end of the up platform. The station closed to passengers when Limerick to Claremorris passenger trains ceased in 1976, but remained open for excursion traffic until the mid 1980s, although the line remained in use for regular freight trains until the late 1990s. Passenger services between Limerick and Galway via Athenry were restored in March 2010, with the station at Crusheen due to reopen in 2011.
