Fintown Railway

About Fintown Railways

The Fintown Railway is operated by Comhlacht Traenach na Gaeltachta Lair (2000) Teo which translates as the Central Gaeltacht Train Company.

Gaeltachts are designated areas of Ireland where Gaelic is still the primary language and old Irish traditions and culture form part of everyday life.   The company is very much community driven and aims to further develop the railway viewing it as a catalyst for sustainable tourism development in the area.

An Mhuc Dhubh translates as the Black Pig. This was how locals christened the arrival of the first steam engine 100 years ago. Puffing, "snorting", and billowing plumes of black smoke, this monstrous creature evoked memories of St. Colmcille's prophesy centuries earlier: that there would never be peace in Ireland until the return of the wild pig to the shores of Loch Finn!
