Waterford – Tramore and Dungarvan – Lismore Railway.
(N.B. The Lismore – London line used to get salmon to Billingsgate Market, London in 23 hours – in spite of the carriages changing boogies to suit the British system. Irish rail had wider tracks to carry people – as opposed to goods).

Bóithre Iarainn Waterford and Lismore Railway Part One
Described as “one of the most scenic routes in the country” the railway will be fondly remembered by many. The programme features stories from the War of Independence and Civil War era such as the blowing up of the Ballyvoile Viaduct and the Durrow Ambush. Archive photographs kindly supplied by Waterford County Museum will also be of great sentimental and historical interest to many viewers.
