Appraisal

This former station building is one of the few structures associated with the railway at Drumshanbo. Its fine stonework and brick detailing are typical of Victorian architecture. Today this house stands as a reminder of the Ballinamore, Arigna and Aughabehy Line, which served the area until 1959.
