An Irish Road

The small roads of Ireland

Yes, this is a two lane road.  Maybe it’s hard to tell in the photograph, but anyone who has been to Ireland will be able to attest to the surprise they got when they had to drive on a road like this.

Things are ok, until you meet that oncoming tractor or truck, and you have to reverse half a mile back down the road into a ditch somewhere, so that you can get by.  It’s all part of Ireland’s charm!

This picture was taken in County Clare on a coastal road near the Burren.
