Great Southern & Western Railway

Great Southern & Western Railway

The Great Southern & Western Railway was one of the main railway operations in Ireland in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The heart of the GS & WR was the Cork-Dublin main line, a route still important in Ireland today.

In 1925 GS & WR was amalgamated with all the other railways operating wholly within the Irish Free State to form Great Southern Railways.
