It’s Leap Year Day, and the 128th anniversary of the opening of the Listowel & Ballybunion Railway in 1888. (Or is it only the 32nd anniversary?)
The line was also known as the Lartigue monorail, after its French inventor, Charles Lartigue.
Here’s my story about Kerry’s unique railway from the August/September 2009 issue of History Magazine. Enjoy.
