Appraisal

Formerly associated with Bawnboy Road Railway Station, this house served as the station master's house, located across the tracks from the station to the south. It retains its historic form and picturesque details, which add to its traditional character. The ensemble consisting of the former railway station, goods shed, and station master's house is an important part of the civil engineering heritage the county and an interesting reminder of the scale of the transport network in the past.
