Much has been written about Ireland's railways but 'The Railway House - Tales from an Irish Fireside' is unique in that it describes life in an Irish country railway station. Over 2,500 railway houses still stand but remarkably no one has ever written about the people who lived in them - until now.

The book centres on a railway house near an embankment at the end of a short boreen cutting through the esker ridge of the Ballinough Hills.

Looking out past a level crossing onto the lonely expanse of Doury bog, it cuts a solitary presence in the surrounding landscape. On either end, its gable walls face towards the towns of Tullamore and Clara.

It was into this four-roomed home Kathleen Mary Gaynor, was born on 8th April 1914 - this is the story of her family, the trains and the people who worked on them.
