    We had cups and badges on sale along with Cavan and Leitrim Railway membership forms, if anyone wants one let me know.

    Cups: £10 / €12 (excluding post and packaging)

    Badges: £1 / €1.50 (excluding post and packaging)

    Those who donate over €30 to Nancy will receive a years membership, and those who donate over €100 will be given a donation certificate (Felix yours will be done as soon as I have the time!)

    I've tried several times over the last month. The paypal link opens but comes up with the message "Your session is invalid or expired", and I don't have Chrome.
    I've made donations to you previously without trouble and would like to help finish the project, but I can't do so if you can't sort out the problem at your end.
    As I can't be the only one affected you must be missing out on hard cash. Your call !

    The work around is straightforward. Go to Paypal and login in to your account. Then go to 'send money'. In the "to" section put in 'The Cavan and Leitrim Railway Company Ltd', then add in the amount. Finally, under "purchase details" put in something like 'The Nancy Restoration Fund'.
    If you don't have a Paypal account and don't want to open one, you can email the guys directly and they will provide bank details for a direct bank transfer. You can send Micheal or Darragh a private message via Facebook; go to Avonside "Nancy" Restoration Group and you'll see their names. If you don't do Facebook, then pm me and I can give details.

    This weekend (27/28 July) Nancy will have a new shiny brass dome cover fitted - photos to be posted later.
    All welcome at Dromod, County Leitrim, though you may need to look a little further afield for hotel accommodation as local festivals means there's little left in Dromod itself. Feel free to pm me for details of how to get to Dromod!

    Given how right alongside the mainline station the C&L is, I had a butchers' at train times from Dublin Connolly (roughly every 2hrs, takes roughly 2hrs).

    http://www.irishrail.ie

    What a lot of 'Sold Out' mainline services on Saturday! Looks like the local festival mentioned is a popular one. Here's to hoping many festival goers decide to cap their visit off with the delightful short trip up the line from Dromod C&L.

    Best wishes for a very successful season.

    It looks like only the cheaper tickets are sold out (!), you can still get the more flexible tickets on all trains, at least at the moment. The fully flexible tickets are only 15.99 euros one way; that's still a bargain compared to UK fares....
