Proposed New Trains To Serve Midlands Stations

There could be a Tullamore - Galway route introduced.

Proposed changes to Irish Rail's Heuston - Galway route would see additional services provided for the midlands.

This would see stations such as Tullamore, Clara, Portarlington and Athlone benefit from both later and earlier train services.

A service would run from Tullamore to Galway, also serving Clara and Athlone, leaving at 7:27am and arriving at 8:58am.

Other additional services would include:

05:45am Heuston - Galway (Mon-Fri) 

20:30pm Heuston - Galway (Mon-Sat) stops include Tullamore, Clara and Athlone

09:05am Galway - Heuston (Mon-Fri) stops include Athlone, Clara, Tullamore and Portarlington

20:50pm Galway - Heuston (Mon-Sat) stops include Clara, Tullamore and Portarlington 

10:30am Heuston - Galway (Sun) stops include Portarlington, Tullamore, Clara and Athlone 

13:40pm Galway - Heuston (Sun) stops include Athlone, Clara, Tullamore and Portarlington 

Local Election Candidate for the Green Party in Tullamore, Liam Walsh says it's good to provide a wider scope of train times:
