Geocache Description:

Sidetracked - Farranfore
 
Farranfore (Irish: An Fearann Fuar, meaning "the cold land") lies on the N22 road approximately midway between Tralee (17 km) and Killarney (15km) and on the railway line connecting those two towns.


Farranfore came into existence as a turnpike; a gate at the cross-roads in the village marked the boundary of the lands of the Earls of Kenmare.
 
 
 
 

Between 1893 and 1960, Farranfore railway station, which opened on 18 July 1859, was known as Farranfore Junction as it was the point where one boarded for the spectacular train ride to Valentia Harbour, which was the western-most railway in Europe.
