Reports: Irish Rail Poised To Announce Significant Investment In Athy Train Station.

: 06/19/2017 - 16:03

A "six figure sum" is to be invested by Irish Rail in Athy Train Station.

Sinn Fein Athy Municipal District Cllr., Thomas Redmond, says the refurbishment project may include a "facelift" for the entire building, new pedestrian access and removal of an emergency exit at the front of the station.

He notes, however, that "80%" of ticket sales for journeys via Athy are online, so Irish Rail may move to full automation of the station, in time.
