The Skibbereen branch: Reenroe trackbed, Madore station, Ilen bridge abutment

Situated 47.5 miles from Cork’s Albert Quay, on the 1877-built Drimoleague to Skibbereen branch railway, there is a long section of intact trackbed near a level crossing house in the townland of Reenroe. Further to the south is Madore station, serving the nearby village of Caheragh. Just below this was a large single-span metal bridge over the Ilen (Aighlinn) river, of which only the north abutment survives.
