Dublin Connolly railway station.

Dublin Connolly, commonly called Connolly station (Irish: Stáisiún Uí Chonghaile), (previously named Amiens Street Station) is one of the main railway stations in Dublin, Ireland, and is a focal point in the Irish route network. The ornate station facade has a distinctive Italianate tower at its centre. Situated on the north side of the River Liffey, the station provides intercity and commuter services to the north, northwest and south of the country.

The station was opened on 29 November 1844 by the Dublin & Drogheda Railway Company as Amiens Street Station, after the street on which it is located. Originally the station only served a single mainline to Drogheda, and only in 1853 did through services to Belfast commence. In 1891 the City of Dublin Junction Railway connected the station with Westland Row Station (now Pearse Station) on the city's south side. The C of D Jctn was a separate station known as Amiens St Junction and consisted of the present platforms 5,6 & 7 with a separate street entrance. After the amalgamation of the GNR (I) at the end of the 1950s this station became part of the overall Amiens St and the separate entrance fell into disuse. The C of D Jctn Rly. allowed services to run from Amiens St., through to Westland Row, and onwards to Rosslare and the Southeast. Services to Sligo were transferred to the station in 1937, with the closure of Broadstone Station by CIÉ (see also MGWR). Services to Galway and Mayo also originated/terminated at Connolly Station after 1937, running via Mullingar and Athlone. This was discontinued in the 1970s in favour of running services out of Heuston Station on the better quality Cork line. Passenger running between Mullingar/Athlone ceased completely in 1987.
