Kent Station, Cork is an Iarnród Éireann train station, named after Thomas Kent. The current building was built in 1893 and replaced two earlier stations that served as separate termini for the Great Southern and Western Railway called Glanmire, directly in front of the portal of the tunnel through which the railway into Cork passed, and the Cork and Youghal Railway terminus which was above the tunnel portal. Its purpose was to allow through running of trains following the 1865 takeover of the Cork and Youghal Railway by the Great Southern and Western Railway. The station was originally called Glanmire Road Station, but was renamed Kent Station in 1966 on the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The station served as a filming location for the 1979 movie The First Great Train Robbery starring Sean Connery, Donald Sutherland and Lesley-Anne Down.
