Kent Station
Kent Station in Ireland has been named after Thomas Kent. It was built way back in 1893 and was in place of two other stations that used to serve trains of the Great Southern and Western Railway. Originally, this station was known as Glanmire Road Station but renamed in 1966 on the 50th anniversary which was the celebration of Easter Rising. The Kent Station is so famous that it has been used in many movies.
The Kent Station connects one directly to the Heuston and Kerry Stations. A new commuter line was opened in the year 2008 for the convenience of the passengers.
The Kent Station is located in the second largest city in Ireland. There are very few commercial outlets at the Kent Station. At this point, it has five platforms in use. Trains that start at the Kent Station run all the way up to Dublin. There is an old engine that is on display. This engine was designed in 1847, and it continued to operate until 1874. The preceding stations to Kent are Mallow and Kilbarry.
