The Story

The Gap is the main route through the Bluestack mountains, connecting north and south Donegal and home to one of Donegal's most famous watering holes, Biddy's O'Barnes. The train started rumbling through in 1882, and came to a halt in the late 1950s. You can still clearly see the path the railway took on the eastern side of the gap, which makes you wonder where the other 220 miles of the Donegal railway lie and what it would have been like to travel on the 'Swilly'. Those of us born after 1959 can only dream.
