‘Next Stop – Stories from Galway’s Railways’ – Directed by Paul Murphy, these are a collection of four short documentaries dealing with different aspects of our railway heritage. Rather than telling our railway history these short films deal with the Heritage left behind by the railways and are very much set in the present. The first film ‘Castlegrove Station’ is the story of a man and his young family who move from Dublin back to his native Galway. ‘Fishing line’ explores one mans love of angling in the shadow of Ballynahinch Castle. ‘One day in Castletown’ is the story of a community group and there efforts to restore an iconic building while ‘Temporary Track’ deals with a little know private railway used to harvest turf.
