Millionaire railly keen.

Byline: By MIRROR REPORTER

A MILLIONAIRE businessman has asked for permission to build a railway station in his garden.

Gerry Robinson filed papers with Donegal County Council to set up the line at his Oakfield mansion in Raphoe.

The businessman has spent thousands of euro upgrading the mansion which now boasts a castle and a man-made lake.

He opens his gardens to the public every summer to raise funds for local charities.

The former head of Granada Television was voted Donegal Person of the Year in 2001.
