Site Description

Signal interlocking. Although officially open to special passenger traffic only, Dromkeen is equipped with name boards on both platforms, even though that on the Up side is no longer rail accessible. There is a crossing loop and trailing siding here on the Limerick side of the level crossing. There was previously a signal cabin at the Rosslare end of the Up platform. Beyond the crossing on the same side is the signal interlocking and radio aerial. The station closed to all regular traffic in 1976.
