Horseshoes and Trolley Poles: Fintona and Howth Trams in the 1950s

Horseshoes and Trolley Poles: Fintona and Howth Trams in the 1950s

Regular price £8.99

As well as its steam and diesel-hauled train services in the 1950s, the Great Northern Railway (Ireland) operated trams at two locations.

In Co Tyrone, the last horse tram in Ireland, hauled by ‘Dick’, plied its way daily between the town of Fintona and the junction with the Enniskillen-Omagh line.

Over a hundred miles away, the last electric open-topped trams in Ireland operated the scenic route over the Hill of Howth in Co Dublin. This book is a delightful pictorial tribute to these two tram systems which are still fondly remembered by many.

Softback, 64 pages, 60 black & white photographs
