Bagenalstown Train Station

A protest is planned for May 14 over Bagenalstown Train Station becoming a self-service station this summer.

Irish Rail have confirmed that Bagenalstown Train Station will become a "self-service station" in the coming months. 

However, they say that they now have dedicated Customer Service Officers (CSOs) on board many services on this route and will have them on all services shortly. 

This means that there will always be assistance for wheelchair customers at Muine Bheag with the on board CSO there to help boarding and alighting. 

Cllr Andy Gladney, who is organising the protest, said: "I have mothers and parents of children who depend on help at the train station for their children in wheelchairs.

"It’s causing them a lot of stress and concern. We will meet at 4pm (at the train station). Come along and show your support and voice your concerns."
