Midland Great Western Railway Station Athlone
Early 20th Century view of the Midland Great Western Railway Station Athlone, architect J.S. Mulvany. This is an Edwardian view of the Midland Great Western Railway Station in Athlone, which was one of two railway stations in Athlone. Located on a site at Ranelagh on the west side of Athlone, the road which was constructed to connect this station with the town centre became the main Athlone-Galway road. The station opened in 1851 when the first train crossed the Shannon to the west of Ireland. It was designed by the architect J.S. Mulvany who also designed the Broadstone Station in Dublin. It consists of a long Italianate frontage of seventeen bays. This spacious building once housed both a busy railway station and a railway hotel. It closed in 1983 and now serves as engineering offices for Irish Rail.
