Train Wreck At Ballyvoyle Viaduct

A ballast train wrecked at Ballyvoyle Viaduct with the carriages hanging over the embankment. In the early hours of the 21st of January 1923, the ballast train had been engaged in repairs in the Durrow area and left for Waterford. It was intercepted by Republicans and sent back westwards towards Ballvoyle Viaduct, which had been blown up the previous August. The locomotive No. 189 and the Inchicore J15, ended up at the foot of the viaduct piers and the ballast carriages draped over the truncated embankmen
