Above is what we learned from the chapter on Ballinasloe Train Station and Ballinsaloe fair from the book Fifty Years of Railway Life, by Joseph Taltoe. This book is out of print now and is difficult to get so we have recorded us reading it so everyone can enjoy it!
Gregg Ryan, Heritage Officer with Irish Rail lent us a copy of this chapter! Thanks Gregg!
