The Skibbereen branch: ruined level crossing house at Cooragannive

Around one mile south of Madore station there is a ruined level crossing house on the former Drimoleague to Skibereen branch railway (1877, closed 1961). Local people suggested the house was occupied up until the late 1990s (confirmed by newspapers found inside dated 1997). The structure is corrugated iron on a concrete foundation and post-dates the 25″ Ordnance Survey maps of c. 1900. It is now rapidly falling into decay and is hidden by large trees. Here is the map location.
