Ceannt Train Station Facade Repair

  • Client: Irish Rail
  • Location: Galway City, County Galway

About this Project

P&D Lydon were employed by Irish Rail to carry out remedial works on the listed structure of the exiting Railway Building that was Ceannt Station.  

Ceannt Station opened in 1851 as the main terminus of the Midland Great Western Railway giving the city a direct main line to its Broadstone Station terminus in Dublin.  


The works involved carefully removing the cut limestone facade stonework under the supervision of conservation engineers, numbering each stone and careful storage of the same 

The stonework was removed from site to have restoration works to chamfers, damaged and broken stones repaired and then the reconstruction works commenced.  

The works took approx. 2 weeks to carry out at the main entrance to the very busy rail and bus station.
