History

Mr Paddy Carroll, Thurles Train Station, 1961

The Great Southern and Western Railway opened the station on 13 March 1848.[2]

On 5 August that year William Smith O'Brien was arrested on the station while waiting for a train after an unsuccessful insurrection in Ballingarry in South Tipperary. There is a plaque at the station commemorating the event.

In 1880 the Southern Railway of Ireland opened between Thurles and Clonmel on the Waterford and Limerick Railway, making Thurles a junction. CIÉ withdrew passenger services from the Thurles – Clonmel line in 1963 and closed the line to freight in 1967.

Thurles station has three times won the Irish Rail Best Intercity Station prize.[citation needed]
