Irish Rail to consider shuttle bus between station and village in Oranmore

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Irish Rail is to consider running a shuttle bus from Oranmore village to the train station.

Officials from the company attended a meeting of Athenry-Oranmore Municipal District  to discuss the operation of the relatively new station in Oranmore.

A shuttle service operates between Hazelhatch Road and Celbridge station in Dublin and it’s hoped a similar system could be provided in Oranmore.

Councillor James Charity says the location of the train station in Oranmore poses difficulty in terms of people accessing it from the village.
