Greenore, Co. Louth, is something of an architectural anomaly in Ireland. If you have never visited the town, I’d suggest you do. Not only because it is the only discrete railway town in Ireland,* but because the architecture is straight out of northern England.
The reason for this is that the town was built as a company town by the Dundalk Newry & Greenore Railway (DN&GR) which was financed by the London & North Western Railway.
In recognition of this architectural heritage, there is currently an exhibition in the town which celebrates this.
* Whilst there are concentrations of railway company provided housing in Ireland, including at Rosslare, Co. Wexford (co-incidentally, previously known as Greenore) and Inchicore in Dublin, both areas have expanded beyond the original development and can no longer be architecturally identified as a discrete development.
