HistoryEdit

Opened by the Cork and Bandon (Bantry Extension) Railway, by the beginning of the 20th century the station was run by the Great Southern and Western Railway. It was absorbed into the Great Southern Railways in 1925.[citation needed]

The station was then nationalised, passing on to the Córas Iompair Éireann as a result of the Transport Act 1944[1] which took effect from 1 January 1945. It was closed by this management.[citation needed]
