The MGWR's eight mile Ballina Branch Extension to Killala in Co Mayo closed to all traffic in 1934. In Killala itself there are few railway artefacts including a single arch stone railway bridge on your right hand side as you come into the town and the station itself. This section of disused railway may have the potential to be developed as a walking/cycle route.
