Six decades after Maureen O’Hara and John Wayne arrived into a Co Galway railway station for the filming of John Ford’s The Quiet Man, a community campaign has seen the redevelopment of Ballyglunin Train Station which now provides a visitor experience celebrating the legacy of the film. This delightful former railway station not only represents an important element of the heritage of County Galway.
The station is also a meeting space, where the focus of discussion is on the possibilities for revitalization via other community driven initiatives. Attendees to this event are invited to engage in a consultative process in the creation of other potential creative outcomes for the locality.
Open on a ‘first come’ basis.
