A note from the editor

At present I am busy finalising the text for my book on the North Kerry line (Limerick to Tralee, and the Foynes and Fenit branches) and preparing for two book launches in Ireland as follows:

7pm, Sunday, 24th November: Lartigue Museum, Listowel, Co Kerry:

(Introduced by Jimmy Deenihan TD, Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht)

8pm, Tuesday, 26th November: Newcastle West Library, Gortboy, Co Limerick:
http://www.lcc.ie/Library/Branches/Newcastle.htm
(Introduced by Éamon Ó Cuív TD, former Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

The book is the result of 10 years of research and ground work. It provides a comprehensive history of the construction and operation of these lines from the 1850s to the current day. It is illustrated with maps, station track plans and over 70 previously unpublished photographs.

The down side is that the November New Irish Lines is going to be a bit late, but I hope to send it out before Christmas.
