Conway Auctioneers are delighted to bring to the market, The Station House, a charming two bedroom detached home set over 3 floors . There has been a train station in operation in Ballybrophy since 1847 and was first called Roscrea & Borris, was then renamed Roscrea & Parsonstown Junction in 1858, and renamed again in 1871 as Ballybrophy.

The station was originally to be located in Borris-in-Ossory, but the traders there were worried that this new rail system would take away trade from the Bianconi stage coach.

As it was being constructed, Ballybrophy was the location for the first railway murder in Ireland, a macabre backdrop for this beautiful location, in the shadow of the Slieve Bloom mountains.
