Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ballynoe railway station is a planned railway station to be located on the outskirts of Cobh, County Cork in Ireland. Initially forecast to open in 2008 in line with the National Transport 21 development, in July 2010 the opening of the station was postponed indefinitely due to cuts in government capital funding following the Irish financial crisis. Cobh is a seaport town on the south coast of County Cork, Ireland. The locality, which had had several different Irish-language names, was first referred to as Cove in 1750. It was renamed Queenstown in 1849 to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria and so remained until the name Cobh was restored in 1920 with the foundation of the Irish Free State. It was spelt Cobh instead of the original Cove as a way of "gaelicising" an English placename, as many Irish placenames had been anglicised by English settlers. The word "Cobh" has no meaning in the Irish language.show more
