Dunlavin & Hacketstown stations are featured in the May 2020 edition of New Irish Lines,  if you are not already a member I am sure Alan O'Rourke will sort out a copy alanorourke@hotmail.com

The article includes tracklayouts of both stations and some information on train working.

According to the article Tullow Branch passenger and general goods traffic proved 'vulnerable" to road services (GSR?). Dunlavin dispatched up to 30 wagons from fairs when livestock traffic was good and the station was the railhead for the Glen of Imaal firing range. In its heyday foodstuff for the Dublin Markets including dead rabbits, fowl and milk which presumably have gone by passenger train.
